What is service-learning? How can it be implemented in my discipline? If you have thought about teaching and would like your students to put theoretical knowledge into practice while partnering with the broader community, this workshop will give you the basic theoretical framework, provide you with relevant resources, and help you draft out your very own service-learning project.

By participating in this workshop you will:

  • Define service-learning
  • Define critical service-learning
  • Articulate how service-learning can be applied in higher education
  • Identify potential service-learning projects to address community challenges
  • Understand how the subject matter can be applied to daily life
  • Identify the connection between their academic learning and the community (real-life experience)
