Panelists will deep-dive into questions around socially engaged learning, practice and scholarship at The New School: How do socially-engaged projects and pedagogy consider and incorporate social justice issues and methods? How can students be better prepared for engaged learning with external partners and communities? What institutional processes, structures and resources would better support strong community partnerships and enhance the social justice outcomes of engaged learning activities?
