This is the second 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. The workshop on course materials will cover:

  • assignment models and typical assignment components
  • syllabus design and grading schemes
  • incorporating reflection into service-learning practice
  • logistics and common challenges working in community settings

Lunch will be served.
