Session Description

Community Based Learning: A Classroom Off Campus

Community-Based Learning is a form of service learning that provides students with hands-on experience in local non-profit organizations while earning academic credit. In this session participants will learn more about this unique learning option, where students learn directly from leaders in the community while having their personal reflections and critical analysis guided by a classroom instructor. Working collaboratively, instructors and non-profit leaders formulate learning objectives and knowledge outcomes that prepare students with practical, real-world experiences.
