Lecture

The Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service hosts this opportunity for GW faculty to connect in conversation on the subject of Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR). Dr. Uriyoan Colon-Ramos, recipient of the 2017 Nashman Award for Engaged Research, will frame the conversation by presenting examples of her own research and describing her approach to conducting CBPR. The conversation to follow will invite others to consider or describe how the principles and values of CBPR intersect uniquely with their own work.

CBPR is a collaborative approach to research that promotes positive change through an equitable and reciprocal relationship between residents, community organizations and university researchers that is reflected in all levels of project design and dissemination. CBPR is a partnership between community and university investigators in which each group contributes their expertise and they share equal ownership of the process and products of research collaboration.  

The Nashman Center's Conversations on Community-Engaged Scholarship at GW are designed for a faculty audience but open to all, including students, staff, and members of the community. Please RSVP here!

Reading

Join the English Department in welcoming Kateřina Kolářová, Professor in the Department of Gender Studies from Charles University in Prague. Her book project, tentatively titled Postsocialist Rehabilitations: Disability, Race, Sexuality and the Limits of National Belonging in the Czech Republic offers to view the postsocialist transformation in the Czech republic as a project of national belonging and abandonment that depended upon assemblages and dense interweavings of disability, race and sexuality. In this talk, she will trace how the project of what Julie Passanante Elman terms ‘rehabilitative citizenship’ is achieved through locating failure, and explore how forms of national belonging are predicated upon conditions of abandonment. How is this tension between belonging and abandonment negotiated and justified?

Instructional Technology Lab

Join the Instructional Technology Lab to learn about Blackboard! Have you ever had students wondering why they got a certain grade on their assignment, or what their grade was made of? Consider using Blackboard rubrics. A Blackboard rubric lists evaluation criteria for a graded activity. Rubrics can help students organize their efforts to meet the requirements of an assignment. Instructors can use rubrics to assess the students consistently against a set of criteria, and to explain their evaluations to students. This workshop will cover the basics of Blackboard rubrics. Participants will learn how to create a rubric, associate it to a graded activity and effortlessly grade using an interactive rubric.
