Call for Guest Posts: Impact Measures

CIRCLE is seeking proposals for guest posts to their website, civicyouth.org, on the topic of impact measures. They especially welcome writing on measures that can be adapted by other researchers and practitioners or discussions of how measures have been adapted. They welcome all types of measures of civic learning and engagement, but would be especially excited to feature posts about innovative or novel ideas for measuring impact and measures appropriate for diverse contexts and by diverse people.

This call is part of a new guest post initiative, beginning this summer and fall. CIRCLE will organize 6-month series of guest posts on topics that are timely and significant to youth engagement fields. They will promote discussion on each post, compile them into a “series proceedings,” and host online conversations.

For more information and instructions on submitting a proposal, click here.

FREE PUBLICATION | AAC&U’s Civic Prompts—Making Civic Learning Routine across the Disciplines

By Rebecca Keller, AASCU Civic Engagement Intern and Indiana University of Pennsylvania

civicprompts

AASCU’s sister organization AAC&U has produced a free publication entitled Civic Prompts: Making Civic Learning Routine across the Disciplines. This report suggests a need to 1) change the definition/current conception of civic learning, 2) more clearly articulate precisely what a “civic minded” institution is, and 3) ensure that all educators are capable of engaging their field of study through a civic lens. The report also advocates engaging students in the “big question” of civic learning; preparing students to not only have knowledge of civic engagement but to also actually take action; and highlighting personal and social responsibilities in every discipline.
