The theme for this year’s meeting, Civic Engagement 2.0: Re-Imagining, Strengthening and Deepening Our Civic Work, is inspired by web 2.0 applications (e.g., social media, blogs, Wikis) that are not only the next iteration of an existing application, but also facilitate collaboration, information sharing, and user-centered design. The theme poses the following set of questions: How can we make existing civic education and engagement efforts more student and citizen centered? What can we do to make ADP and TDC more interactive, participative and discovery driven? How can we harness new technologies to engage more students and/or to make our teaching and programming more effective? During our meeting in San Antonio, we will explore innovative ways in which to advance our civic work.
The 2012 meeting will be an outstanding program, with approximately 350 attendees, including provosts, other administrators, faculty members, students and community partners. The conference structure includes four plenary sessions, a set of featured speaker presentations and a series of concurrent sessions with multiple presenters.
