Introduction to Engaged Design: Developing Community-Based Learning Courses
Have you been thinking about developing a new course that integrates community engagement? Would you like to learn how to best transform an existing course into a community-based learning course? In this session, co-led by staff from LSA’s Office of Community-Engaged Academic Learning and the Edward Ginsberg Center, we will discuss ways to promote student learning through work in and with communities. We will explore key principles and promising practices for developing effective community-based learning (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 those new to community-engaged learning, but faculty with experience can register for our March 20 workshop, Digging Deeper: Enhancing Your Community-Based Teaching.
