Register now to enroll in a summer workshop offered by University of Kentucky College of Education assistant professor Dr. Kayla Johnson – a faculty member who focuses on working within communities to help address key issues impacting them. Complete the workshop to earn a digital badge from the UK College of Education.

Open to anyone (professionals, community members, and students), Johnson’s workshop is geared toward those interested in working within communities in any improvement capacity, such as someone starting a non-profit, those working to address critical social issues, and/or researchers and graduate students conducting community-based participatory action research.

“We wanted to create a way for people who value lifelong learning to spend time with the same world-class faculty our students know and love. Our faculty are dynamic, engaging, and enjoy the process of making their knowledge and research accessible to the broader community,” said Margaret Mohr-Schroeder, UK College of Education associate dean and professor in the Department of STEM Education.

Johnson will co-teach the workshop with Dr. Joseph Levitan of McGill University. The workshop will be taught August 2-6, with synchronous meetings from 1 to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 3 and Thursday, Aug. 5. The workshop offers the chance to earn 15 professional development hours.
