The Office of the Provost, in collaboration with the Office of Engagement, invites faculty and instructors who currently teach, or have taught courses that include community engaged learning experiences (i.e. academic projects or assignments which engage students and community in mutually beneficially learning situations, community-based, experiential or service learning) to share their experiences with like-minded colleagues.
The goal is to continue collegial conversations about how we institutionally recognize and identify courses that involve community-based learning. The objective is to come to a shared understanding of what community engaged experience in coursework is, how to connect it to academic content and student learning outcomes, and to discuss how these courses might be coded to recognize community engaged learning.
The expected outcome of this session is to determine specific criteria used to qualify courses for a community engaged code, and how coding of such courses might be created and used.
