Service-Learning Faculty Learning Communities at BGSU Benefiting from Collective Wisdom
By Allia L. Carter, Assistant Director of Curriculum Programs and Faculty Development
The Office of Service-Learning (OSL) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) have been hosting service-learning faculty learning communities since 2007. Since the inception of the Service-Learning Faculty Learning Communities (SLFLC) each cohort has established a track record of being effective at increasing student learning, engagement, and satisfaction.
The communities have served as a means to assist faculty in making a connection between theory and practice, while helping students “make sense” of course learning outcomes.
Join OSL and CTL on Wednesday, February 23rd from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. for a brown bag discussion in 201 University Hall. This session will be presented by Jane Rosser, Director of the Office of Service-Learning and it will be an opportunity for you to learn more about teaching service-learning courses and how to qualify to be a member of our next 2011-2013 SLFLC cohort.
Past members of our communities shared the following benefits:
