Community-Engaged Learning: The Importance of Radical Empathy
Date & Time
Wednesday, May 19, 2021, 1:00 PM - 1:45 PM
During this session, we will share lessons-learned from our Spring 2021 Community-Engaged Practicum at Middlebury College, whose theme was the transition to a just and sustainable future in Vermont and beyond. In addition, we will share our class's emphasis on radical empathy and ways that educators everywhere can prioritize this central human characteristic in community-engaged (and other) courses. - Jonanthan Isham, Professor of Economics and Environmental Studies, Middlebury College
