Just checking in -- since I was part of a panel coordinated by Doreen
Starke-Meyerring, I'm wondering if I need to submit my "part" of the panel?
If so, here it is--
Case Study A: Local/Global Partnerships and Civic Engagement
Jim Dubinsky, author of a chapter on a partnership between the professional
communication program at Virginia Tech and the local YMCA, will illustrate a
strategy and rationale for integrating local community partnerships into
program design. His case study describes benefits of building partnerships
with local organizations to address difficulties international
students/immigrants and their families face. These local partnerships,
often the result or extension of service-learning courses, bring people from
many cultures together and help people find a sense of place. Thus, the
global and local join to become ³glocal.² In this presentation, Jim will
outline principles guiding the development of a ³glocal² partnership and
some of its challenges, to include the issue of sustainability. Program
administrators who are interested in enhancing or expanding the social
component of their programs may find these partnerships facilitate both
public awareness and public action.
PS--really enjoyed getting to know you a little better. Hope we can have
further conversations and even a possible collaboration.
All the best at your home up the road! Jim
