Chanira Rojas - School of Professional Studies
Often when designing inclusive pedagogies, we keep a diverse group of students or perspectives in mind. What if we involved them in the design process of program development? This workshop uses the development of a Bachelors of Arts in Youth Studies as a case study in participatory program design. Participants will learn about how a BA in Youth Studies was developed with input from current Youth Studies Masters students, faculty, alumni, as well as CBO and city agency partners. This workshop will elucidate how a co-design processes may help move us away from illusions of inclusion or performative diversity. The facilitator will share the BA creation story and invite participants to engage in dialogue around a series of questions for collective consideration.
