Program Description

The ES Event Series gives faculty and graduate students an introduction to engaged teaching and research methods. Participants 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.

The series will delve into how and why to do community-engaged work with students.  Faculty and graduate instructors are invited to attend some or all of the offered events. Participants 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.

“Our collaborations with CTL have not only created opportunities for engaged scholarship in the various programs The Heyman Center supports: they have also led to increased awareness on campus of the value of working with community organizations and of the innovative work such collaborations can produce. CTL’s promotion of engaged scholarship at Columbia is opening new paths for learning and the meaningful exchange of ideas.”
