Apply for the Faculty Development Seminar in Community-Engaged Learning!
This year we will hold the 4th Faculty Development Seminar in Community-Engaged Learning. Given the Coronavirus crisis that has forced us to transition to online classes, we will be holding this year’s seminar online, making use of synchronous sessions and independent projects. Once we know who is interested in participating, we will establish a mutually agreed upon schedule for the seminar this late spring/summer.
Faculty from every school of the college are invited to participate in learning about Community-Engaged Learning, and developing a syllabus for a CEL class. If there has been a class that you have wanted to transform into a CEL course, or one that you would like to adapt to include a CEL component - this is your chance to get help and develop your class in a community of like-minded individuals.
We have again received funding from the Provost's Office and will be able to offer a $2,000 stipend to up to five faculty members to participate. Faculty will receive $1,000 for taking the seminar, and receive an additional $1,000 for running the course for the first time during the following academic year.
If you are interested in participating, please apply by Friday, April 24. To apply, interested persons should fill out this Google Form, telling us what course you would like to work on developing or revising as part of the seminar, and why you're interested in learning more about Community-Engaged Learning.
Website Resources & Community Engagement Blog
We have created a lot of useful resources on the College website for Community-Engaged Learning. There's an ever-growing list of our community partners, best practices and sample syllabi for faculty, and other resources.
We’ve also created a Community Engagement Blog. https://jaspercommunityengagement.blogspot.com/
