Workshops and other Faculty Development
The Service-Learning Program provides several professional development and grant opportunities to faculty and staff to support service-learning and civic engagement.
Upcoming SL Workshops (see below)
SL Faculty Learning Communities
- The Service-Learning (SL) Faculty Learning Community (FA21/SP22) is designed for faculty who are new/newer to Service-Learning (SL), including instructors who are designing or revising a new SL class or teaching an established class that already includes SL. The FLC will inspire and equip faculty to use SL best practices in a manageable way. Participants will attend six cohort meetings, participate in an observation of one another’s classes, and produce a deliverable (like a syllabus, revised assignment, or a different way of evaluating or reflecting on SL and its effectiveness). Participants who complete all portions for the Service-Learning Faculty Learning Community will receive a $300 stipend.
The Service-Learning FLC will meet in person (or Zoom) for six 90 minute sessions spread over fall and spring semesters. The fall dates are Wednesdays at noon on 9/8, 9/ 29, 10/27, and 11/17.
