Appalachian Summit on Service-Learning Pedagogy & Practice
The Bonner Center for Service Learning & Civic Engagement is excited to host the Appalachian Summit on Service-Learning Pedagogy & Practice on the first Saturday of February each year. We aim to bring together campuses, community partners, and additional stakeholders across the region on an annual basis to create service-learning outcomes for students both inside the classroom and within the community. Our goal is to initiate greater civic dialogue and foster tangible differences in our communities.
We are utilizing the following guiding questions to plan the summit and in consideration of all workshop proposals submitted.
- What best tools and practices exist to improve the coordination of a project, partnership, or event across multiple courses and/or disciplines?
- How do community partners and faculty design courses and work together as co-educators?
- What is the most effective way to assess the value of service-learning for community partners and students alike?
- What are student development opportunities that link service-learning and civic engagement withinstitutional civic missions? What are innovative ways to engage students in opportunities?
