The ADP National Meeting in Orlando is Virtual – June 2-4, 2011 #ADPS11
By Cecilia M. Orphan, National Manager, American Democracy Project
The theme of this year’s meeting, Beyond Voting: Active Citizenship in the New Era, poses the following set of questions: What does it mean to be an active citizen? How does online technology shape our citizenship behaviors? Are there generational differences in how we think about citizenship? What are the key citizenship behaviors and skills that students should possess by the time they graduate? What are the signature pedagogies and practices that encourage students to become active citizens? During our meeting in Orlando, we will explore effective strategies to engage citizens in civic work with these questions in mind.
The 2011 American Democracy Project National Meeting will host featured sessions, small and large workshops, a new “View from 30,000 Feet” series, spectacular keynote addresses, a Game of Politics Simulation, a National Issues Forum, and a robust set of concurrent sessions.
In addition to these special program features and because of the success of our eCitizenship: New Tools, New Strategies, New Spaces initiative, we have added online dimensions to the ADP National Meeting in Orlando.
