Engaged Learning Forum | Podcasting through Uncertainty at Westville Correctional Facility

Thursday, April 14, 2022 - 11:00am to 12:15pm

Geddes Hall, Coffee House

Speakers
Alesha Seroczynski, Ph.D., Associate Dean and Director of MCI College Operations

Evan Schultz, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Fellow, Moreau College Initiative

The Moreau College Initiative (MCI) offers individuals at Westville Correctional Facility the opportunity to pursue higher education degrees while incarcerated. In 2019, MCI received a grant from the Center for Social Concerns to offer a Podcast Club to MCI students. Just after purchasing necessary equipment, however, Westville experienced a 15-month pandemic lockdown. The goal of the MCI Podcast Club is to enrich the academic and creative lives of our students by serving as a forum for them to discuss how a liberal arts education in prison is transforming their intellectual lives. Like other extracurricular activities, Podcast Club acts as a supplement to their robust academic coursework in literature, public speaking, economics, philosophy, history, political science, physics, and other disciplines. Participation in the podcast club is also an opportunity for students to cultivate both communication skills in interview and debate, as well as technical skills in hardware and software to record, edit, and produce podcasts. Join us for a discussion about MCI, the burgeoning Podcast Club, and navigating uncertainty in community-university partnerships.

Register by April 12 to attend.
