Engage Out - Assessment Workshop: Community-based Learning Faculty Workshop
Drexel is offering an intensive, three-day community-based learning (CBL) workshop October 10 - 12, 2016. This workshop is designed with faculty in mind. Please see the Community- Based Learning Webpage for examples of courses being taught at Drexel.
The workshop will be held at the Dornsife Extension Center on days one and three. Sessions will include foundations and framework for community-based learning and partnerships. Students, faculty and community partners will offer hands-on advice and mentorship to guide a meaningful CBL course. Day two will be facilitated by the Think Tank members within Graterford Correctional Institution and will include active learning pedagogy and rich discussion of “embracing discomfort” within a CBL course. At the conclusion of the workshop, faculty will have a solid foundation in which to begin designing their course.
Through this training faculty will:
-Explore the movement and experience of civic engagement in higher education, including Drexel’s unique Side-by-Side courses.
-Experience and reflect upon discomfort within an academic setting while at Graterford Correctional Facility.
-Experience active learning techniques and pedagogies.
-Begin to develop or further refine a community-based learning course.
-Access support and resources pre and post workshop via an online learning environment.
-Receive a professional certificate of training completion.
