When: TBD upon cohort availability
Description: Facilitated by the Slay Faculty Fellow for Community Engaged Learning, this learning community meets to discuss best practices in community engaged learning and explore how CEL enhances student learning in the classroom. The group meets five times throughout the semester, for 90 minutes each meeting, to discuss the book “Service-Learning Essentials: Questions, Answers, and Lessons Learned” by Barbara Jacoby and apply the knowledge learned in this book to effectively connect classroom learning and community engagement. For one meeting, participants will participate in a hands-on service project with a local community organization. Participants with prior service-learning knowledge are welcome, as well as those who may be interested in gaining new ideas for integrating community engagement into their classrooms for the first time.
Compensation: A stipend of $250 will be provided to each participant at the conclusion of the semester. This opportunity will be limited to eight participants and a copy of the book will be provided.

The IACC Research Fellows Program has allowed me the chance to gain a deeper understanding of service-learning pedagogy and research. During the Pen-to-Paper writing workshop, I was able to pitch ideas to journal editors and received personal mentorship. It is amazing to be supported by such passionate and knowledgeable service-learning experts.
