Program Description: 

During the past year we have had to navigate and respond to a landscape of varying obstacles, detours, and shaky ground—often without a guide, compass, or map. The practice of community engagement has been significantly affected due to the in-person nature of community work and partnership development. This webinar will highlight some shifts that organizations and individuals have made in their strategies for communicating and connecting with their various partners and the public. We will also discuss what strategies worked and how we can leverage these successes for future community engagement projects.

Panel Discussion:

  • CE Faculty: Dr. David Nelson, Dr. Zeno Franco, Dr. Leslie Ruffalo, Dr. Bryan Johnston 
  • Facilitator: Dr. Staci Young

Virtual Gallery Walk + Facilitated Discussion 

Part 1: Virtual gallery walk-through breakout sessions. Pre-recorded mini-talks of 5 minutes in length and are examples of virtual communication and pivots in dissemination methods during COVID. Sessions will replay and people can move in and out of them.  

Part 2: Meet back in the main conference virtual space for a full-group facilitated conversation. This session will encourage feedback through polls and chat features. 

  • How do we leverage what we learned about virtual work for future projects? 

  • What made these programs successful? 

  • What should we take with us when things go back to ‘normal’?
