Research and Best Practice Exchange
ADC’s Partnership with the College Board provides african diaspora content for the Advanced Placement Capstone Course
The African Diaspora Consortium’s partnership with The College Board enables AP Capstone Seminar students to examine the many themes, perspectives, events, and impact of the African Diaspora. The African Diaspora AP Capstone Seminar is the first African related topic in The College Board’s portfolio of courses. In the Seminar course, students are given an introduction to conducting independent analysis of complex ideas across various disciplines. The goal of the class is to provide students with the tools to evaluate information accurately and make compelling, evidence-based arguments.
ADC’s world education research association sponsored International Research Network is conducting a needs assessment of african diaspora scholarship
Our International Research Network has questions, and we’re working hard to answer them. What is a neo-definition of the African Diaspora in its current context?Why is there a paucity of data on African descendant populations around the globe? What are powerful and positive practices that are happening across the Diaspora in economics, education, politics, and the arts that can be beneficial and shared, and why are the positive practices left unexplored? What and how do we teach and how do students learn similarly across the African Diaspora about their commonalities and differences? How can individuals and countries benefit from these positive lessons/ discovered outcomes? How do we use the gaps in economic and educational outcomes to globalize the struggle and influence social justice?
Our Scholars are constantly preparing and presenting research for a variety of journals and publications
Our scholars are working on a number of research initiatives focusing on both region-specific issues as well as issues that impact the African Diaspora at large. Our scholars bring theory and scholarship to practice in areas that range from education to economics. We present at conferences and events that welcome well researched, new age solutions for how to create educational success and outcomes for African descendent populations.
