How can we facilitate the two-way process of immigrant integration through adult immigrant students’ participation in civic and community activities? Our community benefits from the cultural, social, and economic contributions of immigrants. As well, adult students’ engagement in their community supports their sense of belonging and the development of practical skills. Sign up for the upcoming Community of Practice (CoP) on Supporting Immigrant Integration through Civics Education at Santa Barbara City College. This CoP incorporates both Face-to-Face collaborative work and asynchronous activities on Moodle.

The training is designed for instructors teaching adult English language Learners (learners may be in ABE, ASE, ESL, etc.). The training will help educators support immigrants through civics education as understood within the lens of the California Immigrant Integration Initiative and aligned to approved EL Civics metrics. Participants will learn about the Immigrant Integration Framework, explore the resources from the Teaching Skills That Matter in Adult Education (TSTM) project, and gain skills to better support their immigrant students in their classrooms and programs.

This course takes place on Moodle and in Santa Barbara and runs for six consecutive weeks, from 02/06/2023 to 03/17/2023. Weekly participation is required, though participants may, during a given week, log in whenever they wish.

As part of this community of practice, a three-hour Face to Face workshop will be offered on Friday, February 10, 1-4 pm, and a second workshop will be on March 10: 1-4 pm at Santa Barbara City College's Wake Campus at 300 N. Turnpike Road.

Participants who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate of participation (16 hours).
