Community-Engaged Learning: An Effective and Engaging Tool in Remote and Online Environments
Community-engaged learning can be successful in remote, online, or in-person classes and can help students learn academic concepts through reciprocal relationships with community organizations. Community-engaged learning leads to increased student engagement, success, retention, and graduation. Now more than ever, community-engaged learning can also help to fill critical gaps in supports that community organizations are experiencing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this session, participants will explore opportunities to connect academic content to community priority through remote and online learning and come away with strategies and project ideas, as well as learn from successful course experiences this past semester.
Facilitated by Laura Hill Rao, director of civic and community engagement and Joy Guarino, service learning faculty coordinator and professor of dance.
