The traditional in-person Service-Learning Institute, better known as SLI (“slee”), is a 3-day learning community-style institute designed to assist you in transforming your traditional course into a high-impact community-based experience. The Service-Learning Institute focuses on the basics of curricular course design and introduces participants to high-impact community-engaged practices as conceptualized by Hoy and Johnson (2013).
The 2023 Online Service-Learning Institute takes traditional SLI to the next level by focusing on transforming your traditional face-to-face course into an online (or hybrid) community-engaged course. This opportunity will assist community-engaged educators to:
- Develop a NEW online (or hybrid) course with an embedded community-based component
- Redevelop an existing community-based course into an online (or hybrid) community-based course
- Understand ways in which to create remote community-campus partnerships for curricular purposes
Begin by examining your learning objectives, and end with focusing on how to work with your community partners to co-create high-impact experiences for your students. The Institute includes plenary workshops, concurrent learning sessions, and small group learning communities, allowing faculty, graduate students, and community partners to focus on their individual learning needs.
- To increase the number of high-quality, high-impact community engagement experiences courses
- To share promising practices and generate new ideas on how to implement online community-engaged experiences
- To enhance reflection, assessment, and partnerships in curricular and co-curricular high-impact community engagement experiences
