Target audience: faculty interested in exploring the nuts and bolts of designing and implementing community-based service-learning enhanced coursework through project-based or weekly engagement. Improve upon existing practice, or come brand new to the topic.
Service-learning can be a powerful teaching and learning tool, providing opportunities for students to apply academic concepts to authentic community needs, issues, and problems. This workshop delivers an overview of service-learning pedagogy, benefits, and best practices for those interested in enhancing existing courses or creating a new service-learning course.
