St. John's University to Offer Service Learning/Civic Engagement Workshop
Reflection Workshop for Service-Learning/Civic Engagement Faculty on June 12
St. John's University will offer a workshop on reflection as a teaching/learning
strategy in collaboration with NYPA Campus Compact. Although the workshop is primarily
geared to faculty members who have been practicing service-learning/civic engagement
(SLCE), all faculty members who want to further develop reflection as a course component
are welcome. The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, June 12,
at St. John’s University Queens Campus, Queens, New York.
Facilitating the workshop will be Dr. Edward Zlotkowski, well-known author and respected authority in the field of academic service-learning and civic engagement.
The workshop will focus on:
- Making civic learning a natural part of the academic experience.
- Using short texts (fiction and non-fiction) to promote different kinds of reflection.
- Ensuring community voice and community outcomes where appropriate.
