How can we develop curriculum that allows students to engage with the community in meaningful ways to address social and environmental issues, while meeting academic and civic learning goals?
This faculty-led Engaged Teaching Series provides space for faculty to come together, learn about and share effective service-learning methodologies, explore the key components of successful community-campus partnerships and discuss research potential for this work. Engaged teaching and scholarship has mutual benefits for faculty, students and the community - join us to learn more about how you can utilize these methods in your teaching and in supporting the gaining momentum for this at USM. This Spring 2014 Series includes:
- Foundations of Service Learning – Friday, 2/14
- Developing Reciprocal & Sustainable Community Partnerships – Friday, 3/7
- Community Engaged Scholarship – Thursday, April 10th
