Our friends and partners at The Democracy Commitment (TDC) invite you to participate in their Inaugural Immersive Civic Learning Institute. TDC is a non-partisan national organization dedicated to advancing democracy and citizenship in our community colleges. Reacting to the Past (RTTP) consists of elaborate games, set in the past, in which students are assigned roles informed by classic texts in the history of ideas. This immersive pedagogy enhances history and political science courses and features civic skill building which is embedded in the games. Pioneered by historian Dr. Mark C. Carnes, RTTP has been implemented at over 350 colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad.
College faculty and administrators are invited to register for this Immersive Civic Learning Institute presented by TDC’s new Civic Leadership Academy in coordination with the Reacting Consortium (RC).
Conference participants will learn how to engaged students in civic learning & skill building using the RTTP pedagogy in this intensive two-day workshop of either ”Bacon’s Rebellion, 1676-1677: Birth of American Institutional Racism,” or ”Chicago, 1968: The Democratic National Convention.” Register today and share with your colleagues.
TDC and Reacting Consortium Members: $165 | All Others $195
