SL Workshop

Summer SL Development Workshop

Each summer, the Service-Learning Excellence Program will be hosting two four-hour workshops (lunch is included) to assist faculty to incorporate SL into their teaching/research.  This year, the workshops wills be held on July 2, 2021 and July 30, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at STAR Park, conference room 173.

These workshops will demonstrate how faculty can incorporate Service-Learning into their classes and research agenda. The incorporation of Service-Learning, which is a form of experiential learning, into teaching and research improves the quality of life for students, faculty, and community members, provides students opportunities for solving real-world problems, engages students in active learning, and promotes a deep understanding of the subject matter. 

During  the first workshop, a panel of faculty, students, and community partners will present on how Service-Learning has impacted their research productivity, our students, and the community.  Following the panel discussion, participants will brainstorm how to incorporate Service-Learning into their research agenda and classes. 

In the second workshop, participants will present their Service-Learning research agenda and/or course development and will receive feedback during the closing workshop.

Faculty that successfully participate in the summer workshop may qualify to receive a $750 stipend for attending the workshops and a $500 grant for the incorporation of Service-Learning in their courses/research.
