Curious about incorporating community-engaged learning into a course? Interested in sharing what has worked for you to deepen student learning and connect with community needs? Or just want to explore your innovative ideas with colleagues? Join us to think together about ways to incorporate a community-engaged learning element into an already existing course or brainstorm for a new course.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s CELT will be a series of three online Community Conversations. All sessions are 1-1:50 p.m. (EDT). Apply to join us for one or more!
- May 19: Developing and Sustaining Community-Engaged Learning Partnerships
- May 26: Assessing Community-Engaged Learning
- June 2: Critical Reflection in Community-Engaged Learning
Participants are eligible for a $250 stipend if they attend all three Community Conversations, have a consultation with staff from the Center for Teaching Innovation and the Office of Engagement Initiatives and develop an action plan for their course.
In 2020, the CELT Community Conversations will focus on key elements of community-engaged learning courses:
- Developing and Sustaining Community-Engaged Learning Partnerships
- Assessing Community-Engaged Learning
- Critical Reflection in Community-Engaged Learning
Facilitated discussion will allow participants to actively explore components of community-engaged learning, including online pedagogical innovations. Each meeting will incorporate examples, activities, strategizing and opportunity to learn from others’ experiences.
CELT is typically a two-day institute where faculty develop a community-engaged learning course. Save the date for next year’s institute, May 24 and 25, 2021.
CELT is co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching Innovation and the Office of Engagement Initiatives.
