Professor Corey Dolgon - Higher Education Community Based Learning Workshop held at UCC
On May 3rd 2018 Professor Corey Dolgon from Stonehill College Massachusetts came to UCC to present on the basics of designing a Community Based Learning (CBL) course. UCC staff were joined by colleagues from Trinity College Dublin and Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology. Over the course of two workshops Professor Dolgon explored the pedagogy and social justice underpinnings of community based learning, which is an experiential learning approach that fosters collaboration between universities and the community as an integral part of a course or module. This involves active learning embedded in the curriculum, with global and local citizenship as a core value and outcome. Professor Dolgon is an internationally known community engagement educator and Fulbright Scholar. His prior teaching appointments include Harvard University, where he was a visiting professor from 2000-2003, and Clark University. His latest book is Kill It to Save It: An Autopsy of Capitalism's Triumph over Democracy, Policy Press (2017).
