ALL IN Webinar on Fundamentals of Student Organizing

All In Webinar Series image

FUNDAMENTALS OF STUDENT ORGANIZING
Thursday, November 9 |  2:00 PM EST  |  60 minutes

Students can be powerful agents of change on their campuses and in their communities. Through organizing, the process of coordinating efforts, they can effectively promote and advocate for the interests of a group of people. Providing students tools, skills, and learning opportunities to become better advocates for change can help create the foundation for them to become lifelong active participants in our democracy, and the next generation of leaders dedicated to solving the country’s most pressing challenges.

Participate in this webinar to hear from experts on how to train students to be successful organizers. Staff from the Andrew Goodman Foundation’s Vote Everywhere program will share how they train student Ambassadors on the fundamentals of impact-oriented campus organizing and voter engagement through the Vote Everywhere program and their yearly National Civic Leadership Training Summit. They will discuss how to best engage students, what topics to cover, and how to structure leadership development activities.

Speakers

  • Nicole Costa, Vote Everywhere Program Manager, The Andrew Goodman Foundation
  • Kevon Haughton, Vote Everywhere Program Manager, The Andrew Goodman Foundation

A House of Civic Engagement, A Foundation for Civic Learning
Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 2 p.m. EST
Producing informed and civically engaged citizens is a fundamental objective for many colleges and universities, but the way civic engagement is put into practice varies greatly from one institution to another. While most strive to increase the civic-mindedness of their students, there isn’t necessarily a clear picture of exactly what civic learning looks like or how outcomes can be assessed.

You’ll learn about:

  • Possible learning outcomes in civic engagement, and the importance of student learning among them
  • Articulating student learning outcomes amid an institutional drive for civic engagement
  • Transitioning research into practice in the assessment of student learning
