This course has two primary goals. First, students will gain an understanding of the theory behind participatory community development, popular education and critical pedagogy. Second, in class and through partnerships with local organizations and communities students will learn and use key participatory facilitation strategies. The purpose of the class Community Project is to help a community organization explore issues they are interested in and/or struggling with by designing and implementing processes that create a space for listening, dialogue and collective analysis.
