Fall 2017 Workshop Offerings

  • Introduction to Service Learning Syllabus and Course Design

    Date: Tuesday, September 12th, 2017
    Time: Noon - 1:30 p.m.
    Location: CSL Conference Room, Hine Hall 234D
    Presenter: Morgan Studer, Director of Faculty and Community Resources, Center for Service and Learning

    Course and syllabus design: A well-designed course (and syllabus) is essential for educators seeking to go beyond “service that happens to take place in the community” to intentionally integrating community engagement in ways that both strengthen student learning outcomes and honor the principles of community partnership. In this session, we’ll discuss unique elements that comprise a well-designed service learning course and how to draw that out in the syllabus.  Attendees are welcomed to bring a draft syllabus to work on as we will spend active time applying what we learn to our own teaching practice.
