Course ID - CTD0406-4   

Short Title: Service Learning L  

Audience:      Faculty, Administrators
Length of Workshop:       3 hours
Prerequisite    none

The single most important factor that professors bring to the teaching-learning paradigm is their own person.  As such, it is critical that we provide support for teachers to explore their own values, beliefs, and professional identity.  With no other teaching strategy is this as important as with service-learning.  During this workshop, faculty will engage in an active, reflective process designed to explore the key components necessary for effective teaching and learning with a special emphasis on service-learning.

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


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

  • Explain how one's personality traits, learning preferences, and personal values/goals impact one's teaching and learning 
  • Design their course syllabi with the use of pre-reflection and reflection regarding their own personal and professional tendencies/beliefs to enhance and improve student learning
  • Identify the importance of their work as "change agents" and "persons of influence" in the lives of their students and the community
  • Be able to explain the role of pre-reflection and reflection in the educational process with special emphasis on the service learning pedagogy
