How to Learn with Communities

Learning with communities provides students with distinctive learning opportunities. As a teacher there are a number of options available to you in how to do this.

Depending on your experience working with community organisations and your curriculum context you may be more comfortable starting with light-touch engagement or you may be looking to advance the existing work you do and build sustainable, impactful partnerships with existing partners. Other factors such as the size and make up of your class and the type of community engagement experience you want for your students will influence your approach and choice of tools and strategies.
