Building Digital Inclusion With Community Engagement

Community engagement is a vital contribution that leads to the development of locally-driven programs and advocacy for digital inclusion. Community engagement is the strongest form of needs assessment for informing programs. In addition, community engagement strategies provide research and data to convince local, state, and federal policymakers and multi-sector leaders to collaborate and invest in closing the digital divide. Participants are introduced to the role an engaged citizenry plays in strategies to increase adoption, trends in engagement, the reasons behind these trends, and how to communicate these findings. They will also learn approaches to understanding community needs, and increasing social equity through a focus on principles of inclusivity. The second half of the course provides students with the strategies and skills to plan effective public participation.

This course includes 40-60 minutes of self-paced reading, quizes, and homework, and the live 90-minute course on Tuesday, November 30.

Paricipants can earn 1 credit towards NTEN Professional Certificate, 3 CFRE credits, or 1.5 CAE credits.
