The Journal of Effective Teaching
Lauded as a rewarding pedagogical approach, community-engagement can be time-consuming, resource-intensive, and difficult for instructors to manage for effective stu-dent learning outcomes. Collaborative teaching can allows instructors working in the same classroom to draw from each others’ expertise and share resources. In this essay, we propose a fruitful approach that brings the benefits of collaborative teaching to communi-ty-engagement. Two instructors collaborated to facilitate a community-engaged food jus-tice blog, demonstrating the benefits of combining these modalities. In this essay, we re-view relevant literature on collaborative teaching and community-engagement, presenting cross-collaborative community engagement as an innovative model for collaboration be-tween instructors in separate courses, allowing instructors to maintain autonomy while working together toward engaged learning.
