A panel of service-learning practitioners offered their insights on effective service learning at the recent afternoon workshop. A 3-hour workshop was offered for Institute participants with panel presentations on everything from biology research projects to engaged learning in classrooms with special needs children to taking service learning abroad to Mexico. There were also several community representatives discussing ways Lewis faculty could work to partner with them to meet real needs in the community while also enhancing learning for our students. Several PowerPoint presentations were offered and are now available on this site. Please see go to Resources to find information that may be helpful to you.
The Office of Service Learning held a workshop on Wednesday, March 24th entitled “Service Learning: Who’s Doing It? Why not you?” There were eleven faculty who participated in the workshop, primarily those interested in integrating Service Learning into courses or programs with which they are currently working. Thanks to input from Drs. Christie Billups, Clare Lawlor and Anne Rapp, participants noted consistently that the workshop was helpful and energizing. They stated that they left with new ideas to move forward with incorporation of service learning and would follow up with the Office of Service Learning in the near future.
