Service Learning is an educational initiative in which 快播成人s complete a project in the community that directly relates to the objectives of a course and meets the needs of a community-based organization.
Service Learning works to:
- Engage 快播成人s in community-based projects that deepen their understanding of the course content and objectives
- Give faculty a vehicle for helping 快播成人s see how theory and text manifest in reality
- Create a project that benefits the community organization in some ongoing, sustainable way
Faculty Fellows Program
The purpose of this program is to support a faculty member-or a Learning Community who share a course-in developing a new service learning course or redesigning an existing course to incorporate 快播成人 service to the community. Faculty receive a course reassignment or stipend to develop a service-learning project for a course in a cohort setting.
Service Learning Practicum
Service Learning Practicum (SSN 102) is a one-credit course that can be added on to any course with a service-learning component. Faculty receive an added credit to their course load, and 快播成人s pay for the extra credit.
