Designing Community-Based Learning Courses with Diverse Learners In Mind

Community-based learning (CBL) has important implications for the development of cross-cultural awareness and positively impacts campus climate as students, faculty and community members collaborate across differences. In this session co-facilitated by experts from LSA's Center for Engaged Academic Learning (CEAL) and the Ginsberg Center, we will discuss ways to promote student learning for a broad range of students through experiences in communities. We will explore key principles and promising practices for developing effective CBL courses. Participants will begin applying these ideas to their own courses, so please bring a course idea or description. This session is designed for faculty, staff or graduate student instructors who are planning to teach a CBL course.

This session is part of the Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan series. Please see the full listing of series events here.
