Mentor Session: Margaret Gray

Mar 7, 2023

1:30pm – 2:45pm CT

Talk to me about:
- Experiential Education: Creating curriculum that takes students out of the classroom to directly interact with the community (Ex: visiting an urban winery that employs ex-convicts; assisting in an ESL class with refugees; touring an upcycling organization)
- Project Based Courses: How to create projects that engage students as active learners who are applying the content and skills of a course to a single project/set of projects (interviewing immigrants and writing a performance monologue; creating art from garbage; creating a writing portfolio for job interviews/college process)
- Community Partnerships: How to incorporate the local community into the curriculum (art museums, local businesses/professionals, grass roots organizations, religious organizations, local universities and colleges)
