Community-engaged pedagogies: Possibilities for undergraduate public affairs and administration education. In M. Hamidullah (Ed.), Undergraduate Public Affairs Education: Educating Future Generations of Public and Nonprofit Administrators. Routledge Publishing. Hung, W., & McDougle, L. (2021)
[Abstract]: Community-engaged pedagogies are presented as forms of experiential learning methods that integrate community service with classroom teaching and learning in ways that promote reflection and action, cultivate civic awareness and responsibility, and stimulate skill-building for future careers. This chapter is a broad overview of community-engaged pedagogy (CEP) and its impact on a variety of outcomes. The increasingly popular form of CEP is service-learning where students engage in community service projects through reflective thinking and reciprocal relationships. In other words, students are given ample opportunities to step back and evaluate their actions in the context of mutually-beneficial relationships between themselves and faculty, and themselves and diverse community partners. While service-learning expresses itself in myriad forms, one that has gradually become important is experiential philanthropy. Here, students learn by giving—they give grants to selected nonprofits addressing consequential social problems and in turn become educated, engaged citizens, and leaders.
The critical pedagogy of nonprofit management education: Teaching for social justice. In H. Carpenter, & K. Bezboruah (Eds.), Teaching Nonprofit Management. Edward Elgar Publishing. Mason, D., Jones, J., McDougle, L., Suarez, C. (2020).
[Abstract]: Nonprofit organizations often exist to serve vulnerable, marginalized, and underrepresented communities. Yet a lack of diversity and inclusion plagues the nonprofit sector. This chapter argues that when instructors engage in more “critical” perspectives, students of nonprofit management will not only be able to consider questions of power and privilege within nonprofit organizations, but will also be able to understand the impact of power and privilege imbalances within the communities that they serve. It provides a theoretical framework for critical pedagogies, and offers two exercise that instructors may use to provide examples of the way critical pedagogy can inform nonprofit management education (NME).
Experiential philanthropy. In P. Prysmakova, D. R. Vienne, & A. Farazmand (Eds.), Global Encyclopedia of Public Administration, Public Policy, and Governance. Springer Publishing. Xu, C., Li, H., & McDougle, L. (2017).
[Definition]: Experiential philanthropy is an innovative service-learning pedagogy in nonprofit management education. The pedagogy is intended to integrate academic learning with community engagement by allowing students an opportunity to study social problems and nonprofit organizations and then make decisions about directly or indirectly investing funds in them. Ultimately, experiential philanthropy is intended to teach students not only about issues associated with the management of nonprofit organizations but also about how to evaluate philanthropic responses to social issues.
