Innovations in Teaching and Learning: Service Learning

Monday, April 6th from 1:30pm-3:30pm in College of Business atrium, CTLE will be hosting a poster session celebrating Service Learning as part of Innovations in Teaching and Learning Week.

Service-learning is a form of teaching that contextualizes students’ learning by purposefully involving students in collaborations with community partners to address a community need. The goal of service-learning is to promote sustainable and meaningful civic engagement in a way that fosters the development of citizen-scholars and action researchers. At ERAU a learning community has been established, sponsored by CTLE, which focuses on extending the scope of service-learning efforts on ERAU’s campus.

Eleven faculty members (Lisa Davids, Jay Pembridge, Anke Arnaud, Tamilla Curtis, Jennifer Hinebaugh, Michelle Halleran, Emily Faulconer, Steven Master, Sally Blomstrom, Joanne Detore-Nakamura, and Rachel Silverman) will be sharing their experiences about incorporating service-learning into their courses.  There will also be a “Canvas Corner” in which visitors can speak with Tamilla Curtis and Jay Gokhale who have used the Canvas learning management system this spring to teach their courses.
