(1/2) Don’t forget to post any questions you might have here!
(2/2) We will pass along all questions for the presenter, and they will answer as many as they can during Q&A at the end of the session.
Kelsey MaglioHow do we reconcile epistemic justice with SIFTing through information based on the authority and consensus of the sources? What if these authorities perpetuate the exclusion of certain voices?
Robert ShumerDid my post get sent. Don’t see it.
bunnyburrowsThis is such a gift to see the theory that informs your practices. I’m deeply moved by your personal stories attached to this work.
Robert ShumerIn my book Where’s The Wisdom in Service-Learning Dwight Giles writes in the introduction that the wisdom “is in the community.”
bunnyburrowsI’d love to hear more about facilitating these kinds of transformative, vulnerable & honest conversations. Are there best practices you would recommend, especially in early talks or introductions?
Hi @Robert Shumer we aren’t seeing your post either. Please repost it. We will pass along all questions for the presenters.
Geralyn WilliamsGiven the work you’ve done in shifting to facilitating this workshop and space virtually, what are some key learnings on accessing our stories in our current virtual climate?
Geralyn WilliamsHas you found any connections to community care and healing through these conversations and actions?
Shayna SheinfeldMany students cme frm communities typically served by ComEngage but much of CE framework focuses on students coming frm vry different circumstances. How do we acknowledge, honor, educate all students?
Maria CartagenaI’ve been a community partner to many of our neighboring colleges who has pushed back on who has “knowledge” and who “owns” it. This conversation has been so validating and healing.
Keep the questions coming! Please know that we are getting a lot of questions across platforms and our team is organizing the questions to get to as many as possible related to session topics.
Elaine IkedaGreat Job @Alisha Andrews !!!!
Barbara CobleHow do you protect your own spirits when interacting with colleagues who do not acknowledge perpetuating epistemic injustices?
Julie DunstMy dissertation focused on the articulation of community engagement. I found that there are different ways we frame our terms of community engagement.
Kyoko IchikawaHello from Tokai University in Japan. I am very inspired to join this session today!
Kent KothChris, John and Star — thanks for sharing your wisdom. You model how the personal and professional intersect and how we understand “knowledge.” Such an important conversation.
Shawntay Stocks”That space isn’t all about hugs!” Right on!
L.Marie AvilaI’d be interested in the response of the panelists to Barbara Cobble’s question.
Shawntay Stocks”What is the reputation of harm with the community?” Great question!!!
Char Gray-SorensenThese are such important questions. Will we have a copy of the chat in addition to the slides?
Luis RodriguezBe aware, that the term of “America”, while it encompasses identities in the USA, it is also a colonial terminology that suppresses and/or the many American cultures and countries beyond the USA,
John Loggins framework for change is Love. Always has been!
Elaine IkedaWhat a great session! Always good to hear the thoughts of Star, John and Chris!!! Thank you!
Lori JohanssonThis is so amazing and inspiring. Thank you so much!!
Jana SchroederThis was a terrific session. I’m so glad this work is happening.
Andrea WiseGreat job, Star, John, and Chris!
