We will share what we learned at Campus Compact’s Engaged Faculty Institute about Community-engaged Learning. The content will include an explanation of CEL, models for implementation, how to build community partnerships, the role of critical reflection, and best practices. Goals and objectives: To discuss CEL
  • What we thought it was, what it is and is not (i.e., moving beyond charity and volunteer models of service to community-engagement as a pedagogical method for teaching and learning)
  • The four models (Direct, Indirect, Community-engaged Research, Advocacy)
  • The importance of community partners and fostering mutually-beneficial relationships
  • The importance of consistently linking engagement activities to learning objectives through critical reflection
  • Practices: Assignments, Assessments, Evaluation
Participants will: be able to identify methods of CEL, become aware of challenges and benefits of implementing CEL and engage in discussions on best practices. This session is appropriate for graduate students, instructors and faculty from all disciplines and with any level of experience interested in learning foundational information about CEL and/or adding to the discussion.
