Project Pericles Assistant Director, Arielle del Rosario, served as a panelist at AAC&U’s Faculty Friday Webinar, Democracy Despite Disruption: Improving Student Voter Engagement through Pedagogy on April 24.
During this especially disruptive time of COVID-19, Project Pericles remains committed to educating for democracy and sharing our knowledge among higher education more generally.
There were more than 100 people in attendance. Panelists discussed non-partisan pedagogical and curricular strategies to improve student voter engagement. Arielle del Rosario, Project Pericles Assistant Director, shared our free online resource, the Periclean Voting Modules, painting broad strokes of how faculty are approaching this work. She shared how faculty incorporated the voting modules into their curriculum remotely, highlighting examples in biology, economics, mathematics, and sociology. Details about the panelists are outlined below.
