(a) EXCES 1501 — Community Engagement: Contexts and Processes (core course for Citation in Community Engagement) and
(b) CSL 550 — Topics in Community Service Learning: Strategies for Community Engagement (required course for the students in Master of Arts in Community Engagement, MACE)
I currently accept to work with students both in Master of Arts in Community Engagement (MACE) and in leisure studies related to meaning-making, engagement, and mental health issues at honour’s undergraduate, master’s, doctoral, and post-doctoral levels. I have acted as the advisor or a thesis committee member of over 40 doctoral, master’s, or honour’s undergraduate students, including my primary supervision of 18 students at Canadian and American universities. Please feel free to email me if you are interested or have questions.
Guided by our ongoing youth-led participatory action research (YPAR) on youth engagement, our team has facilitated workshops and university courses (e.g., community-service learning course) by incorporating youth-centered, community-based approaches. Please feel free to contact me or another member of our team if you are interested in learning more about our “youth engagement” workshops and courses designed for professionals, college students, and others. In particular, such a course provides the students with both breadth and depth of knowledge about issues and approaches to respectfully engaging, co-learning, and working with youth at risk in order to build a community of practice from both conceptual and practical perspectives.
