Apply for the Ashoka U Commons 2016
The Ashoka U Commons is back! Apply by July 22 to participate.
Apply today to take part in the Commons, a virtual accelerator for cohorts of institutions working on specific building blocks of social innovation education. Over the semester-long engagement, from September 4 to November 30, cohorts of institutions will work together to address the shared challenges of building social innovation education with the guidance of expert advisors, known as Coaches. These Coaches will guide participants as they learn, evaluate and apply best practices towards individual projects, and prepare concrete plans for the next steps in the implementation of their project.
Participants will also be able to draw on Ashoka U’s experience working with over 250 higher education institutions globally. Each cohort will have a guiding theme, and up to eight institutions can participate in a cohort.
The Commons features six unique cohort topics:
– Making the Case for Changemaking Education
– Creating a Social Innovation Course
– Building a Social Innovation Course Sequence
– Launching Co-Curricular Venture Programs
– Mapping Student Learning Journeys
– Building Allies and Raising Awareness
