Description

Activities that impacted knowledge, skills, understanding and critical thinking for self-efficacy and civic life were all embedded in the programs provided through the Professor in Residence (PIR) program, the Middle School Leadership program and through the Provost Faculty Curriculum Grants. For example, PIR Professor Carlos Aleman led the campaign that brought the JMU Center for Global Engagement Legal Office to discuss the implication of the Presidential Election on DACA. Also, while Dr. George Font worked with students at Skyline Middle School in the use of digital technology, it also presented several occasions to education students about the responsible application of digital technology and to use technology to make a difference in their lives and that of others. The JMU students from Dr. Font’s class that participated at his middle school, also had the opportunity to present their findings at an academic conference.
