Disruption As Opportunity

Disruption As Opportunity
with Christen Higgins Clougherty, Executive Director, Nobis Project, Inc., Savannah, GA

Join this interactive virtual session designed to collectively unpack the challenges of supporting community partners in times of crisis and uncertainty. Living through the shared experience of a global pandemic creates the unique opportunity to learn together across difference and distance. The timeliness of Global Citizenship Education could not be evident. We are living out a case study of our fragile interconnectedness.  History is likely to repeat itself—how are we collecting our learnings? How are we responding to this call to action?

Building Community in the Virtual Classroom
What happens to Place Based Learning when we are sequestered? How do we share the stories that provide understanding of ourselves and our communities? Join us in bringing community, connection and deeper meaning to the virtual classroom (and beyond). We are harnessing this unprecedented opportunity of crisis and isolation and transforming it into an opportunity to strengthen and restore ourselves, our students, and our communities.

During the Seminar Series veteran teachers  will share innovative and highly doable ideas that break down physical walls using storytelling techniques that cross disciplines. Seminar workshop leaders are longtime CWI associates who come from K-16 classrooms, administrators concerned with larger issues of equity, along with community-based educator-innovators from a wide array of fields, including the arts, science, folklore, social justice, and more.

Make Important Connections
Seminar participants will experience new ways of working with a variety of exciting online apps that facilitate storytelling, community connections, and the spirit of CWI’s Place Based Service-Learning, Sustainability, and Global Citizenship initiatives. Before the seminar, participants will be invited to make connections with other participants and CWI will provide additional ways to continue those connections as ongoing supportive relationships.
