Schools Partnership Conversation: Opportunities for enhancing the participation of our students within schools
The Stellenbosch University Schools Partnership Project cordially invites you to the 2nd of a 6 part School Partnership conversation series for 2011 themed “Exploring new opportunities through collaboration”.
How well are we preparing students to be socially responsive citizens?
In this second conversation we look at opportunities for enhancing the participation of our students within schools. In alignment with Stellenbosch University’s commitment to exploring opportunities to engage their students with communities, the focus of this conversation will be on the two different routes of student community engagement (SCE):
1) SCE initiated by students
2) SCE initiated by faculty staff and not necessarily directly linked to the students’ core curriculum or for accreditation as part as their formal qualification.
The presenters, Michelle Pietersen from Matie Community Service, One Stop Service and Dr Ubanesia-Jack Adams from the Department of Political Science will share their reflections on their involvement in community engagement within schools and how the two different routes of SCE have evolved.
Aim: The aim of the series of conversations is for staff members at SU to begin to reflect critically about what it means to work together across faculties and support units in the area of partnerships with schools. A common theme that will thread through these conversations is how institutional collaboration can enhance our interaction with schools and the broader education system.
