Workshops, Connecting Campus and Community: A Conference on Community-Based Learning and Research | Earlham College Skip to Content

Connecting Campus and Community

The conference will include two, hour-long workshop blocks. Conference participants are encouraged to propose a workshop. Workshops will provide informal opportunities to share a community-based learning course or project with others or to facilitate a discussion of a topic related to the design, implementation or assessment of community-based learning. We are particularly interested in featuring examples of community-based work from a variety of disciplines in the sciences, arts, humanities and social sciences.

 

If you are willing to lead a workshop, please fill out the brief form below by Wednesday, June 7.

Confirmed Workshops

 

Presented by Randy Stoecker

This workshop will engage participants in exploring perceived barriers to implementing a liberated model of service learning, and strategizing to overcome those barriers. We will consider barriers in both the community and the academy.

Presented by Kerri Heffernan

This interactive workshop is designed to assist faculty in integrating community work into an existing course or in constructing a new "engaged" course.

Presented by Jessie Scott

Using Stoecker's theory of institutionalized and liberating service learning models, DePauw University staff participated in an internal critique of their service programs. This workshop will share our process, attempts toward integrating the liberating model into our programs, and facilitate discussion with other campus leaders.

Presented by Priscilla Barnes, Lily Albright, and Gretchen Morgan

This workshop will highlight lessons learned from a university-public school partnership providing a community-inspired grant writing project for undergraduate public health students. Participants will engage in a discussion about the benefits and challenges of preparing Generation Z for the workforce.

Presented by Jay Roberts

The Environmental Studies major at Earlham has incorporated a community-based research (CBR) component into the senior experience for the last four years. In this workshop, we will discuss how we developed this model based on the work of the Sustainable Cities Initiative at the University of Oregon and what we have learned along the way in terms of both the possibilities and limitations of integrating CBR with the major.

Presented by Jana Schroeder

Participants will have a chance to learn more about the rubric’s six criterion and best practices for using the rubric to score student work. There will be time for participants to share ways their schools are using the rubric and to consider the benefits and challenges of using the rubric as part of an institution’s assessment plan.
