Putting learning into practice - Putting knowledge to the test
Volunteering and social activism are arenas where many of us seek to put our academic skills or knowledge into practice. But it is not always obvious how to bring the knowledge of our field of study into service for a community or cause. In this conversational workshop, we discuss knowledge mobilization and reflective practice for volunteers and activists. How can we make academic knowledge of value in contexts outside the university? How can we make volunteering and activism a valued site of learning?
Facilitators: Mary-Beth Raddon, Department of Sociology, and Kristen Smith, Student and Community Outreach.
