McMaster’s Office of Community Engagement has created a toolkit to contribute to the teaching and learning at McMaster University by supporting and building the capacity for community-engaged education. The aim is to prepare McMaster’s faculty, staff and students for community-engaged educational initiatives. The toolkit includes the essential principles, tools, as well as examples that can be used by staff and faculty to equip students for community-engaged educational settings.
At McMaster, community engagement values fostering ongoing collaboration between the University and community partners on how to better understand and consider the issues identified as priorities by local and global communities. The CEE toolkit brings McMaster closer to performing research, teaching, and service with community members and partners for the public good within the local and global community.
