Topic: How Sustainable Service Learning Community Partnerships can lead to Engaged Scholarship

The Office of Public Engagement’s Service Learning Committee in collaboration with the Institute for Teaching and Learning are offering a sequential learning series on the pedagogy of Service Learning.

This series will provide faculty an opportunity to receive tools and guidance about the pedagogy of service learning. Faculty who attend all sessions will receive a certificate of participation.

Service Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.

March 9 Topic: How Sustainable Service Learning Community Partnerships can lead to Engaged Scholarship

Those who utilize the pedagogy of service learning will have community partnerships to develop and nurture over time in order to create sustainable relationships. These partnerships can lead to engaged scholarship and other research and grant opportunities if framed as such. You will learn from a faculty member who has ample experience through the Husky Sport program.
