2020-2021 Webinar Series and Communities of Practice Introduction


 

Download this handy flier, which also has the full calendar.

For 2020-2021, in light of the need to continue to support the success of campus programs as they navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact, the Bonner Foundation is adapting its work to replace in-person meetings (at least for fall 2020) with web-based professional development opportunities for students, staff, and faculty. By February 2021, we will also determine plans for the Summer Leadership Institute format, which may again be offered online. 

 

Over the course of October 2020 to May 2021, these webinar series will also provide an opportunity for small Communities of Practice (about 10-15 people each) to meet every month, forging relationships and depth in their conversations and learning. At the same time, some of the individual webinars will be open to the Bonner Network at large, allowing for individuals to register for those that interest them. 

 

Each webinar series offers opportunities to build relationships and community across our national community, while gaining valuable education, training, and professional development to succeed in one’s work. These sessions will seek to provide the sense of community, shared vision, authenticity, and connection of both theory and practice that is found at Bonner national meetings. These sessions will be discussion oriented, with opportunities to share and learn across campuses and to wrestle with real life issues and challenges. 

 

Below are the overviews for the series, organized by audience. Click on the full outline to see the monthly topics, schedule, and how to apply to join the cohort. Express your interest in a short email to the facilitators (addressing questions where applicable). Please see dates and guidelines in the attachments below or the flier here. 

 

 

Webinars Targeted for Student Leaders


 

Bonner Professional Development Pipeline Seminar Series - Emerging Leaders Level

Student leaders can apply to be a part of the Emerging Leaders level of the broader four-level Professional Development Pipeline series. Participants can include Bonner Senior Interns, Bonner Leadership Team members, Congress Representatives, or other student leaders. Students who attend at least six webinars, including three core topics and three electives, earn a Certification. Core topics include peer leadership, program management, and diversity and equity issues. Electives will also be cultivated from across the Bonner Network, thus allowing student leaders to offer web-based workshops. Certification benefits include a personal profile on the Bonner website; at least one professional coaching conversation with a more senior or experienced leader from another institution or organization in the field; recognition as a part of a national fellowship program and endorsement of one’s work on LinkedIn; and the opportunity to participate in special events, such as a graduate school fair. Up to 10 students who take on an additional independent project developing a resource (such as a webinar, training, or research project) for the Bonner Network can also earn $200. Review the full outline hereThese webinars will be scheduled on the first Monday (starting October 5) of each month at 3 pm EST.

Through  ongoing group discussions, participants will engage in an integrated approach to foster alumni engagement at colleges and universities in the Bonner Network.

Mobilizing for Communities, Racial Justice, and Equity

This series is targeted for students and staff working to lead initiatives that use Bonner funds to promote racial justice, address current challenges and issues, and strengthen their communities. Intended to support students to leverage their Bonner Community Fund, Bonner Racial Justice Community Fund, and other local resources and assets, webinars will provide a space for participants to engage in learning from each other and from recognized leaders at a variety of nonprofit, government, and activist organizations. Through a series of web-based seminars, students will gain confidence, direction, and skills in program and project design and management. They will also sharpen their awareness about how to build diversity, inclusion, equity, and anti-racist practices into their work, regardless of its focus. Additionally, participants will expand their networks and gain connections and ideas that will help them succeed. Review the full outline here. These webinars will be scheduled on the third or fourth Monday of each month (starting October 26) at 3 pm EST.

    • The Senior-Level Professionals Level is designed especially for veteran Bonner Directors, Center Directors, Faculty, and other administrators with 10+ years experience. Core topics include navigating institutional change and structure; building center infrastructure (strategic planning, fundraising, grant research & writing); and working with faculty to design community-engaged curriculum. First Thursday of each month at 3 pm EST.

 

Electives will also be cultivated from across the Bonner Network, thus allowing staff to offer web-based workshops (as they do at meetings). Staff who attend at least six webinars, including three core topics and three electives, earn a Certification. Certification benefits include a personal profile on the Bonner website; at least one professional coaching conversation with a more senior or experienced leader from another institution or organization in the field; recognition as a part of a national fellowship program and endorsement of one’s work on LinkedIn; and the opportunity to participate in special events, such as a graduate school fair.

Advancing Community-Engaged Learning in Higher Education

This series is especially targeted for faculty and administrators. It is intended to advance the knowledge of participating practitioners in their own course design, facilitation of community partnerships, teaching and mentoring of students, and work on institutional change. Participants will have the opportunity to wrestle with, apply, and refine ideas as they implement them within their own teaching, learning, scholarship, and programs. At the same time, through the Community of Practice, participants will produce new knowledge to shape the field. Participants also have the opportunity to design and implement an independent project (such as a course, article, or institutional change initiative), later published in a compendium by the Bonner Foundation, and earn $200. Review the full outline here. First or second Wednesday of each month at 2 to 3:30 pm EST; see calendar below. 

 

Leadership Series

This series will provide participants with an opportunity to reflect deeply on and expand their approaches to leadership. Participants will read Brene Brown’s Dare to Lead, engaging in activities to identify their own primary values and character traits as leaders. They will engage in learning and sharing, drawing on a variety of fields and speakers, about leadership. Participants can include students, staff, faculty and AmeriCorps members. Review full outline here. Email kcordier@bonner.org if you are interested. These webinars will be scheduled on the second Tuesday of each month at 3 pm EST. See calendar below. 
 

 

Teaching Social Action Series

This series is especially designed for faculty and administrators who seek to develop a social action course or pathway at their institution. It draws on a successful course model from Professor Scott Myers-Lipton at San José State University. Participants read Change!, a book that profiles this model, as well as a teaching guide available from the replication of the course at 12 institutions so far offered here on the Bonner Wiki. Through ongoing webinars, Scott Myers-Lipton and other instructors share their syllabi, teaching approach, course assignments, and other models. The outline is under development and will be posted soon.
