Title:   Community Engagement (Online)      

Course Number:      UEP 0194A   
Room: Online

Course Description:

An exploration of the goals and practice of community engagement, from theory and history to methods and techniques.  The course is offered online to reach a broad audience of students and practitioners.  We use three case studies of public participation processes in Lowell's Hamilton Canal District, Boston's Chinatown, and Somerville.  We view and discuss filmed sessions of public meetings and charrettes.  Facilitators and participants of public participation events are interviewed for this course.  Readings include academic texts, web sources and media coverage of the community engagement processes.
 
Assignments include frequent live discussions with guest speakers conducted via WebEx. Please contact the instructor for more information.---------------
This is an online course that will not meet on campus. Most course activities and interactions will occur asynchronously and online through Tufts Canvas, the university's learning management system. You can take this course from anywhere, as long as you have a reliable internet connection (broadband highly recommended). Online courses are held to the same academic standards as campus-based courses and students can expect high levels of interaction with faculty and classmates.
 
Online courses at Tufts are not self-paced, however they typically offer much more flexibility for students. Typically, course content is organized in a weekly structure, so students will be expected to login and participate regularly. However students can generally set their own schedule within each week as long as assignments and activities are completed on time.
 
All online courses will have regular instructor office hours where students have an opportunity to speak to their teacher, via telephone or web conferencing. Some courses may require a live session(s), where students are expected to login to a web conferencing site at a certain date and time.
 
Some online courses require proctored exams. Students in the area can come to the Medford campus to take these exams at a specific date and time. Students taking the course truly from a distance will need to identify an acceptable proctor and go through Summer Session's proctor verification process.
