Interested in learning more about UNCG’s new Community Engagement Collaboratory? The Institute for Community and Economic Engagement is hosting two hands-on workshops:
Wednesday, Sept. 5 (1:30-2:30 p.m.)
Thursday, Sept. 6 (11 a.m.-noon).
Both workshops will be held in the Curry Building, Room 304.
In this interactive workshop, speakers will: (1) demonstrate this new tool (participants will be able to follow along on their own machine in the lab); (2) highlight how you can use the tool to find useful resources/partners; (3) share the benefits of joining the collaboratory and entering in your projects/partnerships; and (4) explore what reports might be useful to you as university faculty and administrators. They will also answer any questions you may have.
The Community Engagement Collaboratory is a platform to connect and enhance campus-wide information about and support for community engagement relationships, resources, activities, and outcomes.
Whether providing direct services at a nonprofit organization, teaching professionals and residents of a community, or conducting research collaboratively with community partners, all members of UNCG-community partnerships will be able to use the collaboratory to document and display their engagement in a centralized and web-accessible place.
