Participants in this workshop will discuss cutting edge developments in the service-learning field. This interactive hands-on workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to apply promising practices of instructional design in service-learning to their own
course(s). Participants will share the primary challenges they face in designing service-learning effectively for learning and examine and apply to their own course(s) models for instructional design, for critical reflection, and for assessment of student learning.  The facilitator will share examples of scholarship of teaching and learning projects that facilitate continuous improvement in the intentional design of service-learning for learning and will facilitate participant consideration of the prospects for designing service-learning so as to advance Miami Dade’s Learning Outcomes.

* Approved CT&D Workshop for Faculty Professional Development hours.


As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain, apply, and adapt a precise yet flexible definition of service-learning that clarifies the central role of critical reflection  as well as the importance of well-articulated learning outcomes
  • Identify the counter-normative dimensions of service-learning, explain their implications for students’ abilities to learn effectively through the pedagogy, and develop mechanisms to build students’ capacity to learn in counter-normative ways
  • Utilize an instructional design process for integrating service-learning into courses and mapping curricular activities to  learning objectives and MDC's Learning Outcomes
  • Define critical reflection, explain the difference between reflection strategies and reflection mechanisms, evaluate their current reflection strategies and mechanisms against associated criteria
  • Use the DEAL (Describe – Examine – Articulate Learning) model to integrate a critical reflection and assessment assignment in a course
