Open Thread Wednesday: Engaging the Community?

Each Wednesday, ProfHacker hosts an open thread discussion. Sometimes a specific topic is announced, and sometimes the discussion is completely open. Please remember to abide by our commenting and community guidelines. Thanks!

Today’s topic comes from commenter @jrothastro, who asks about getting more involved in the community, either as a volunteer or for pay:

Teaching community-education courses, adult-ed courses, teaching in prisons, working outside the academia box? Pluses and minuses, war stories, tips, all might be stimulating and inspirational.

Do you have any experience with this kind of work? Let’s hear from you in the comments!
