Attention: Faculty, academic staff, and instructors, new or experienced with community-engaged learning
Community-engaged learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community partnerships with instruction and critical reflection to enrich the student learning experience, teach civic and social responsibility, and strengthen communities. Implementation strategies range from direct service to advocacy to research to philanthropy, and more! Through presentation and discussion, attendees will learn how to get started or enhance what they are already doing and connect to a network of peers and resource supports. If you are interested and not able to attend or would like one-on-one consulting, please email the Center for Community Engaged Learning's academic programs team to discuss ideas, plans, and or partnership support at Michelle Snitgen (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Stephanie Brewer (email@example.com).
Participants can register for one workshop or all sessions.
