Course 2: Building Successful Collaborations with the Communities: Asset-Based Community Development
Class Experience Level
Beginner

This 2-week course describes the principles of Asset-Based Community Development as a tool for building community coalition and for community storytelling.

This online course is part of the "Building Successful Collaborations with the Communities" series, which addresses four topics in community engagement:

  1. Community-Based Librarianship
  2. Asset-Based Community Development  (i.e., this course)
  3. Collective Impact
  4. Grassroots Librarianship

The Series integrates concepts of community engagement with application tools for practicing librarians. Community engagement begins with librarians themselves as members of the community having ownership and vested interest in its success. The community defines the library. The library is the backbone infrastructure to engage community members and agencies for desired changes. Participants will learn to use tools of appreciative inquiry and Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) with the goal to facilitate positive changes in the local community.

Objectives:
  1. To apply appreciative inquiry in community storytelling
  2. To develop a community agency narrative using ABCD
