Description

At Georgia College, community based engaged learning for students is considered a “transformative experience” and is incorporated within the liberal arts curriculum. The goal is to provide students with authentic, mutually beneficial service learning and leadership experiences in the community. Academic and public librarians are natural partners for these community based engaged learning initiatives. This interactive presentation will recreate two successful community/civic engagement exercises (facilitated by Georgia College librarians) for participants: On the Table and The Year of Voting Dangerously. The presentation will also dedicate time to discussion of academic librarians roles in facilitating community participatory research and civic engagement, and provide tips and tools for implementation and assessment.
