Community Conversation: Social Impact in a Time of Social Isolation (CATDC Online)
ABOUT THIS COMMUNITY CONVERSATION These are unprecedented times. While the COVID-19 pandemic disrupts communities all over the globe, it has been inspiring to witness individuals and groups act to help others, in big and small ways. What are ways we can partner with community organizations while practicing social distancing--and when our schools are conducting classes remotely? With so much need, how do we respond in ways that are helpful rather than hurtful, particularly as a school? And while one of the effects of coronavirus has been social isolation, experts say that staying connected with others is more important than ever. Join us for a conversation to explore these challenges and lift up promising strategies to continue our collective work in this new paradigm. This conversation is designed for community engagement and service learning coordinators, but is open to any faculty member interested in exploring how schools and students can contribute to and benefit from their communities during this crisis. There is no cost to participate for CATDC Member Schools, but space is limited.
