Strengths of the CEP

Opportunities to learn about each other and discover deeper connections are important and require purposeful engagement that differs from traditional learning models when working remotely, in-person or both. The CEP received The National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps (I-Corps™) program in 2020. This program which uses experiential education to help researchers gain valuable insight into entrepreneurship, allowed us to align our vision with reality by conducting market research and a series of customer-discovery interviews to learn about existing gaps, customer desires and pains and design solutions to created an engaged society. 

The Cultural Engagement Playbook may be the answer you have been looking for. Designed with flexibility in mind to meet the needs of in-person and virtual universities or companies during these unprecedented times, this playbook that incorporates multimodal training is designed to:

  • Enable trainees (in person, virtual or both) to engage in a cultural self-examination of their personal and family journey, world view, beliefs and attitudes that will influence their understanding of the population they serve in education and beyond.

  • Encourage empathy for others and improve the understanding and importance of diversity and personal journeys.

  • Allow everyone to feel that their cultural symbols or values are not left behind at home but rather have space in class or workplace

  • Promote a greater sense of community among trainees whether an in-person or a virtual learning environment is available
     

Years of experience with this approach and helping others implement it have allowed us to witness the power and impact of this approach to frame group interactions over time and strengthen connections between them.Inserting this approach in a learning or work environment is challenging but is the benefit this playbook and the accompanying training provides.
