Teaching for Peace: Integrative Learning, Citizenship and Education

Presented by: Tom Matyok, Cathryne Schmitz, University of North Carolina at Greensboro
Presented at: 4th International Conference on Conflict Resolution Education
Date of Session: June 10, 2011

Session Description: Engaged scholarship is about merging the academy and broader civic community. Students inform scholarship through civic action. But, increasingly, students are entering and departing the academy unprepared for civic engagement; a process that is best integrated throughout students’ education process. The focus of engaged-scholarship in higher education at the end of the formal learning continuum is not enough. A model of integrative learning is explored with discussion regarding the role of the academy as a leader in the change process.
