About the Bonner High-Impact Meetings


 

The summer Bonner High-Impact Institute meeting provided campus teams with an opportunity to work collaboratively and strategize about how to make civic engagement and community engaged learning deeper, broader, and more integrated.  Each campus brought together "travel teams" from the participating cohorts made up of staff and senior leaders, faculty, students, and community partners.  During these 4-5 day meetings, teams engaged with each other, across institutions, and with national partners.  They delved into understanding and discussing relevant high-impact educational practices and how to scale those at their institutions and connect them with community engagement.  They also delved into the principles and practice of high-impact community engagement, focusing especially on capacity building projects with partners.  This process fostered a vibrant national learning community of higher education and partner institutions working to move our field forward. 

 

In addition, we held three Bonner High-Impact Planning Retreats for Team Leaders.  These involved the leaders of each team in smaller, focused gatherings. They gave team leaders a chance to wrestle through big ideas and concepts, like Democratic Engagement and Full Participation, using supporting scholarship and literature.  They also delved into the challenges for making institutional and cultural change.  The 2014 gathering was entitled Civic Scholars, opening up to a broader set of institutions (not involved in High-Impact) and issues, like tenure and promotion change.  

 

Each meeting involved outcome-based planning for projects, incorporating sample outcomes for student learning and community impact.

These included time to review and apply scholarship and literature, strategies for incorporating outcomes, creating a detailed calendar of activities, and logic modeling. For more information, contact Ariane Hoy (ahoy@bonner.org).
