Time: 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Watch this previously recorded session.

with Marcy Campos (Center for Community Engagement & Service), Maren Burling (Center for Community Engagement & Service), and Arianna Lopez (Center for Community Engagement & Service)

This session focuses on (re)designing a course syllabus to incorporate Community-Based Learning & Research (CBLR), a pedagogy that deepens student learning through collaboration with a nonprofit or school in the DC area. This “high impact practice” advances AU’s Strategic Plan and helps students better understand issues that impact local residents and organizations. Participants will discuss best practices and challenges for collaboration with community partners, compare direct service, project-based work, and community-based research, and explore ways to incorporate critical thinking and reflection.
