Service Learning & Scholarship: Successfully integrating service learning & engagement into your research agenda.

Tuesday, February 2nd
10:00-11:00am
Room 153, TLPDC
Presented by Linda Donahue & Tanja Karp

Many faculty and instructors continue to integrate service learning and other strategies for active student engagement in their teaching, but few take the next step to incorporate these practices into their research and scholarship. In this session experienced service learning faculty will describe the process of integrating service learning with the expectations of research and publication within the academic community. Please join us for a discussion of how to successfully publish and use the scholarship of service learning in your portfolio for tenure and promotion.

Addressing the Learning in Service Learning

Wednesday, March 9th
2:00-3:00pm
Room 153, TLPDC
Presented by Erica Irlbeck & Katie Langford

One of the most important components of service learning is the connection students make between the course content and their service experience or project. But how do we know that they're making the connection? How do we know that they're truly reflecting critically on the issues at hand? Join us as two experienced service learning faculty members discuss how they assess their students' learning in service learning courses through the use of well-designed assignments, rubrics, and examples of former student work.

Assessment and Reflections Methods

Wednesday, March 30th
2:00-3:00pm
Room 152, TLPDC
Facilitated by Erika Brooks-Hurst

Do you know how to create assignments for your service learning course that ask for student self-reflection? Do you want to tweak or rejuvenate past assignments? How do you assess reflective assignments? Join us for a discussion on how to create, plan, execute, and assess assignments that require students to critically examine their own experiences and learning within the context of your service learning course.
