In addition to the fantastic sessions we are planning for this year’s virtual conference July 12-15, we are happy to announce plans for this year’s mobile learning workshops. At past CDS conferences, attendees have looked forward to stepping out of the typical conference setting to learn about and interact with the local host community through our mobile learning workshops.
Of course, this year’s conference will be held entirely online instead of “north of normal” in lovely Fargo, North Dakota. So, we have adapted our mobile learning workshops to be engaging, video-based experiences where attendees will have the opportunity to see and learn about how real-life community development efforts in the greater Fargo area are contributing to community resilience.
New this year, attendees will be able to participate in all of the mobile learning workshops via the conference platform at any time during the conference. All workshop videos will incorporate three components - immersive experience/real-life tours, interviews with key spokespersons, and Q&A panel conversations with local practitioners and academics - and workshop topics will draw directly upon the Community Capitals Framework. Attendees should look forward to learning about the following areas of community development and community resilience in the greater Fargo area:
- Cultural diversity
- Natural environment
- Energy development
- Arts and development
- Local food systems
- Downtown revitalization
