With nearly 80 service-learning courses each year, representing more than 35 academic units, our campus is becoming a hotbed of creativity and diversity when it comes to service-learning pedagogy!
Faculty who attend our workshops often report that they value connecting with colleagues across campus, sharing ideas and challenges regarding course design, reflection, and community partnerships.
To supplement this exchange, we are happy to be hosting our second Service-Learning Teaching Showcase! The showcase will be helf on September 19th from 4:00-6:00 in the The Edge, located on the first floor of Bostock Library on West campus.
Join us as seven faculty members attempting to engage their students with the community make very short (7-minute) presentations on an aspect of their teaching---interspersed with time for questions and discussion. We hope that this informal, lively exchange of ideas exposes participants to a variety of models and practices, connects us with like-minded colleagues, and inspires further conversations and collaborations!
Snacks will be served. RSVPs appreciated but not required.
