Community-Based Learning Summer Institute
Now in its sixth year, the CBL Summer Institute brings together faculty, students, and community partners in a two-day institute to learn more about community-based learning and to plan a CBL project for the coming year. Faculty and students receive a stipend for their participation.
In the past, we have had workshops in the basics of Community-Based Learning as well as facilitated a roundtable discussions that the Center for Teaching & Learning hosted. In Spring 2010, our office hosted Academic Development Day for faculty to learn more about public scholarship and pedagogy. We had several breakout sessions and keynote speakers on how to link the college to the community in an effective way. We also have workshops for community partners to attend-faculty can come to these as well to listen and get a new perspective. Next year, we are planning on having several trainings for our student leaders as well.
We host at least two workshops a semester. Please look for announcements for our next upcoming workshop!
Check out the student-community collaborations!
