This is the first workshop in the Engaged Scholarship Event Series for Spring 2017. This series gives faculty and graduate students an introduction to engaged teaching and research methods. You will explore innovative community-engaged projects that are happening across campus, learn about models for service-learning in the classroom, and develop their own project ideas and assignments. We will delve into how and why to do community-engaged work with students. Those who attend the full workshop series will learn about working with community partners, mentoring students in community settings, syllabus and assignment design, and service-learning assessment strategies. This introductory workshop will cover:
- basic tenets of engaged scholarship and service-learning
- how community engagement benefits student learning
- relating service-learning to your course objectives
- getting started with your own project
