Engaged Learning Series: In My Shoes
The Engaged Learning Series (ELS) is a university-wide series of events designed to engage students, faculty, staff, and community in discussion, debate, dialogue, learning, and action around an issue of public concern.
For 2019-2020, the series aims to raise awareness, impact personal behavior, and increase public engagement around the theme of "In My Shoes..."
This theme encompasses telling your story from the first-person perspective. It represents an empathic approach that allows the recipient to understand stories in a connected manner separate from stories provided secondhand. It suggests finding other perspectives to stories that may otherwise be untold or underrepresented. It encourages civil dialogue with those who may have different viewpoints, opinions or beliefs. It provokes discovery of new perspectives or stories.
All programs, events, topics, classes, etc. are encouraged to consider integrating the theme with the emphasis of highlighting one or multiple ELS prisms:
