Invitation: The Bonner Foundation has been working closely with Scott Myers-Lipton, professor at San Jose State University, to offer a series of training and support resources designed to grow the number of faculty and staff who integrate social action into an academic course or a co-curricular fellowship program. They invite applicants to join the 2020-21 Social Action Course Development Program. What distinguishes this approach to teaching social action is that students learn and put into practice the skills of social action by launching a campaign during the semester the course is being taught. This program will bring together faculty and staff for a structured training and professional learning community led by Scott Myers-Lipton who teaches at San Jose State University. This course development program will feature monthly Zoom workshops from late October to early May during the 2020-21 school year. We will also use the Bonner Learning Community platform for sharing materials and online discussions and feedback.

If you are interested in participating, please respond to these questions in an email to [email protected] and [email protected]:

  • What interests you about participating in this course development program?
  • Have you taught social action before? If so, please describe. If not, have you had any experiences that will help you in teaching it?
