Incorporating Civic Learning Across the Disciplines (10/24)
The Center for Community Engagement and the CTLR welcome Dr. Jennifer Domagal-Goldman for a discussion and workshop on how to incorporate civic learning and engagement into disciplinary courses—and why this is important. Discussion will include theoretical frameworks utilized in the field, high impact pedagogies for facilitating civic learning, and a brainstorming activity about bringing discipline-specific content and pedagogy into existing or new courses.
Jennifer Domagal-Goldman is the executive director of the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge at Civic Nation. Prior to joining the Challenge, Dr. Domagal-Goldman directed the American Democracy Project, a national civic learning and democratic engagement network of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU). Dr. Domagal-Goldman serves on the editorial board of the eJournal of Public Affairs and on the advisory board for the Students Learn Students Serve Coalition. She has contributed to a number of civic engagement publications, including co-authoring chapters in Reimagining Democratic Societies: A New Era of Personal and Social Responsibility (2013); Becoming a Steward of Place: Four Areas of Institutional Focus (2014); and Student Civic Outcomes in Service Learning: Conceptual Frameworks and Methods (2017). She also contributed to Higher Education’s Role in Enacting a Thriving Democracy: Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement Theory of Change (2018).
Dr. Domagal-Goldman earned her PhD in higher education from Penn State. She received her MA in higher education and student affairs administration from the University of Vermont and her bachelor’s degree from the University of Rochester. Dr. Domagal-Goldman’s dissertation focused on how faculty learn to incorporate civic learning and engagement in their undergraduate teaching within their academic discipline, for which she received the 2011 IARSLCE honorable mention dissertation award. (IARSCLE is the International Association for Research on Service Learning and Community Engagement.)
Of note, “students’ openness to diversity (is) an important civic outcome…” (Janke, Domagal-Goldman, 2016). These pedagogies also align with liberal education, “a philosophy of education that empowers individuals with broad knowledge and transferable skills, and a strong sense of values, ethics, and civic engagement (AAC&U).
