How OCEL Supports Faculty
OCEL has worked to understand the experiences of faculty utilizing a community-engaged pedagogy by scheduling time for in-depth conversations to learn more. What started out as an initiative to check-in with a handful of faculty members who were interested in talking with the Office became an interview series which provided the team with insights on how best to support our colleagues. Since then, OCEL has adopted multiple approaches to accompanying community-engaged educators. Along with still hosting large-scale workshops and programs, OCEL team members also focus on direct outreach to faculty and staff on a more individual basis, working one-on-one with colleagues to brainstorm about partners, reflection, assessment, and troubleshooting.
Beyond supporting types of community engaged learning pedagogy in classrooms, OCEL can assist with other forms of community engagement that take place on campus.
