Community-Based Learning Fundamentals
Facilitator: Paul Valdez, Associate Director, Center for Public Impact
This workshop is for faculty and staff who would like to learn the basics of integrating community-based learning (also known as service-learning) pedagogy into their course or program and how to identify and establish a relationship with a community partner. In this workshop we will provide examples of different levels of community-based learning involvement that can be applied to diverse topics and disciplines. We will also provide a variety of models of campus-community partnerships.
Workshop goals and learning objectives include:
- To define and clarify working definitions of community-based learning and other terms associated with this pedagogical practice.
- To increase awareness of community-based learning pedagogy.
- To train faculty and staff in best practices of reflection, community partnerships, and civic learning outcomes.
- To learn about how the Center for Public Impact can support community-based learning.
- To share examples of BGSU community-based learning courses and programs.
- To share resources for the effective design and implementation of community-based resources including sample syllabi, community partnership agreements, reflection models, civic learning outcomes, and professional development opportunities.
