Joelle McGovern, MEd

Joelle McGovern, MEd, has been teaching for the Dignitas program since 2013. She earned her bachelor’s degree in computer information systems and her master’s degree in education from The College of St. Scholastica. In Joelle’s 16 plus years of working with college students at CSS, she has gained experience in online instruction, strategic planning, project management, residential life and academic advising. Currently she serves as an adjunct instructor for the Computer Information Systems Department at The College of St. Scholastica.

Joelle's inspiration for designing Star Wars and Servant Leadership comes from various professional development training opportunities received while working as a student affairs professional along with Matt Stover's book adaptation for Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Joelle’s teaching style is influenced by the work of Geneva Gay's research on Culturally Relevant Pedagogy. Joelle agrees with Gay's theory that students need to experience a safe and inclusive learning community that offers students opportunities to connect new information to their own lived experiences. This includes providing students access to course materials through multiple forms of presentation and designing learning activities that allow students the freedom to demonstrate their knowledge and critical thinking through various mediums. Students can expect to feel comfortable, challenged, and receive prompt, yet formative feedback.

Joelle's goals for the students enrolled in her class are that they will apply key principles of servant leadership into their daily lives and begin to recognize moments of authentic joy.
