*Note: This event has passed. Please view the resources and recordings below.

Session Description:

In today’s rapidly evolving digital world, the online context has become an important component of learning relationships within community. The pandemic jolted us into a steep learning curve in this space. Through this session, we will explore models for, and examples of, reciprocal and meaningful community-engaged learning. We will review how the seamless integration of community projects and relationships into online course curricula can be accomplished when learners apply their digital skills in meaningful, community-focused projects while respecting the needs and desires of community.
