A workshop for faculty interested in learning more about service-learning will be held Monday through Thursday, Jan. 10-13, on the St. Paul campus. The workshop will run from 9 a.m. to noon each day.

This Introduction to Service Learning Workshop is designed for those who have little or no experience with service learning:

  • Hear from experienced faculty and community partners
  • Discover the foundations and goals of service-learning
  • Learn from a guidebook and notebook of resources
  • See sample syllabi and gain practical strategies for classroom and community work
  • Learn how to transform a regular core or major-field course, or to offer an entirely new course, by incorporating service-learning.

A stipend will be provided for workshop attendees. Both full- and part-time faculty members are welcome. This workshop is co-sponsored by the Office for Service-Learning and Faculty Development.

To register, contact Barb Baker, service-learning program manager, (651) 962-5380, by Friday, Dec. 17, indicating your goals for participation.
