Facilitated Learning Exchanges 

NCCE is launching a series of (virtual) Learning Exchanges in fall 2022 to provide an opportunity for community engagement professionals to convene on a specific topic to share best practices and insights and to crowdsource answers to challenging questions and concerns. We seek to improve practice and create a supporting networking environment for North Carolina CEPs.  The Learning Exchanges, which conclude in April 2023, are expected to convene virtually four times during the academic year.

Learning Exchanges are facilitated by community engagement professionals in the NCCE network. Dr. Patti Clayton, NCCE Practitioner-Scholar-In-Residence, is providing support and resources to the faciliators.  Facilitators receive a small stipend at the conclusion of the academic year.

Learning Exchanges will be capped at 15 participants to ensure meaningful engagement. To ensure equitable access, only one representative, per member campus, will be eligible to participate (on a first-come basis). If the group has not met the cap, multiple reps will be allowed to join a single exchange.
