Sharing Authority: Highland & Lemon Project
STLI supports aspects of a Mellon Grant to explore and build learning experiences with input from community stakeholders. Specifically, we work with James Monroe’s Highland and the Lemon Project at W&M to engage the descendant community and faculty scholars in exploring W&M’s history with race relations. As part of William & Mary’s successful University Teaching Project, two teams were created to collaborate on projects and course development that lead with community engagement, foster civil discourse, and are grounded in humanistic values.
• Course Design
• Provide opportunities for key faculty members to participate in the STLI Online Course Development Seminar
• Conduct research into community-based learning, course design, and strategic community partnerships
• Produce multimedia content in support of documenting the Highland archive and for storytelling purposes
