Community-Based Learning & Research (CBLR) is a teaching pedagogy that incorporates meaningful community service into a course with the goal to enhance students’ learning. In this annual Institute, faculty will: (1) Understand key characteristics of high impact CBLR; (2) Re-envision and revise a course design and syllabus; (3) Develop new tools and tips for incorporating reflection; (4) Connect course content with the student engagement provided; (5) Hear directly from community partners and faculty practitioners about the best practices for collaboration; and (6) Share challenges and promising practices.
Run in a workshop style format, this Institute, now in its sixth year, is relevant both for those who have experience with CBLR but want to refine an existing course and those who are exploring this approach for a forthcoming class. Curriculum development grants are available. Guidelines are forthcoming.
