What is the Digital Community Engagement Pathway?

Visit with the planning committee to learn about developments over the last year in the design of a project-based learning cohort for underserved students called the Digital Community Engagement Pathway. The Pathway uses community engagement, small research teams, digital methods, and an interdisciplinary approach to core curricula. During their first two years, students will meet in intensive research teams comprised of five students, a faculty mentor, and a community partner. These teams will focus on a seemingly unsolvable problem such as poverty’s manifestations across rural and urban environments. In products at the end of each year, research teams will apply a variety of digital methods, including data mining, mapping, storytelling, and cultural analytics.

Leading Research Teams

This workshop will discuss best practices for facilitating research teams, which are small collaborative groups of student researchers who, facilitated by a faculty member, design their own course of study and project outcomes to address an issue that interests them. Their design is grounded in problem-based and project-based learning.

Designing Content with African American Students in Mind

African American student enrollment at SIUE has increased in notable ways over the last ten years, but what has this increase meant for course design? This presentation highlights several key findings concerning African American undergraduate educational experiences and raises the possibility of actively addressing a student population that is less white than it was in the past. Participants will discuss SIUE’s indifference and isolation problems at the University and identify useful course design strategies for acknowledging a growing African American student presence at SIUE.

Mentoring Underserved Students

Often, underserved students are unintentionally overlooked and excluded from important collegiate life experiences because educators do not recognize their unique needs.  Many of these students do not have access to the proper guidance (through family who graduated college or resources in college preparatory high schools) to successfully navigate college. We will address methods in which these students can be mentored/assisted in order to develop their full potential.

Building and Supporting Community Partnerships

How do you find ideal community partners that fit the needs of your in-class goals and assignments? How do you build those partnerships for longevity so that they meet the needs of your student while also successfully supporting the community organization. This workshop will discuss making first contact, designing MOUs, and how to handle inevitable mishaps drawing upon experiences from the Successful Communities Collaborative.

Teaching with Digital Methods

Digital pedagogy goes beyond the use of discussion boards to actively engage students in the creation of digital artifacts that help them explore their content and their research in innovative ways using a variety of media. These practices help students learn new modes of communicating professionally particular to digital environments. However, setting up assignments like these can be daunting for both students and faculty. This workshop will cover best practices for integrating projects like these into courses.

Integrating Digital and Physical Spaces

What are the differences between digital and face-to-face interactions? Digital environments disrupt and complicate the terms of power differentials of age, class, race, and ethnicity because of technological identity, access, and skill-level. How do we engage students in ethical and philosophical questions about their digital lives?  If teaching students how to be good citizens is one of our core values, what does it look like to be a good citizen online and what skills do students need to interact and communicate in digital as well as face-to-face environments?

Digital Visualization and Communication Workshop

In this two-hour workshop, Jessica DeSpain will cover several digital visualization and communication tools related to text mining, mapping, archiving, videography, and podcasting, and networking that teachers might use in their courses. After a basic overview, faculty will work in small groups to test the technology and report back on the benefits and disadvantages they see for classroom applications.
