Community Service Learning Workshop (CSL 101) | October 11, 2019 10am-noon 

Faculty and lecturers learned about Community Service Learning (CSL) and how to integrate this high-impact practice into their courses at a “CSL 101” Workshop. Organized each semester by ICCE, this workshop explored how to turn a current course into a CSL-designated class for students or include CSL designation when creating a new course. This valuable session also provided a brief overview of ICCE, explored how CSL contributes to student success, and discussed service-learning outcomes. The workshop included an experiential component, so participants were encouraged to bring at least one course syllabi. There was an opportunity for small group dialogue to review syllabi for building content connections.

“Community Engaged Scholarship: Develop, Act, Share”, SF State Faculty Retreat | Thurs., Jan. 24th, 2019
 
Community engaged scholarship (CES) is scholarly work conducted as a mutually-beneficial partnership between trained "experts" and community members, and intended for community improvement (University of Chicago).  Although the division of responsibilities can vary considerably depending on the nature of work and the people or groups involved, it should always contain the active and intentional sharing of knowledge among key players during the research process. With social justice at the core, this session will revolve around how equal access to opportunities and privileges within a community, for instance, can be achieved through CES including in defining questions to be explored, methods used, analytic frameworks considered, and communication of findings. Presenters: Dr. Nina Roberts, Faculty Director, Institute for Civic & Community Engagement; Dr. Anoshua Chaudhuri, Professor &  Chair, Department of Economics; and Monica DiLullo, Graduate Student, College of Business.  Participants learned about practical partnership and collaboration strategies, tools, and new ideas; understand conceptual frameworks and sample engaged scholarship resources; and articulate and defend a strong, progressive research agenda for a socially just society inclusive of community involvement.
 

“Critical Reflection in Service Learning” Workshop | Fri., Nov. 30, 2018, from 10:00a-12p

Faculty and lecturers joined us in this workshop to learn the benefits of using critical reflection in your Community Service Learning (CSL) course design and implementation.  This workshop was open to faculty who currently teach (or plan to teach) CSL courses. In this workshop we achieved the following: 1) shared how ICCE can assist you in adding critical reflection to your course design; 2) reviewed the value of reflection as a theory and share ways to implement it as a practice; and 3) provided examples of how it has been used in specific courses and how it has enhanced student learning outcomes. Time was available for idea and resource sharing, as well as collaboration amongst colleagues. This interactive workshop supported faculty with new ways to incorporate reflection in their course design, enhance what they have already created, or shared their best practices with fellow faculty.

Following the speaker’s panel, we engaged participants in a collaborative workshop between community partners and faculty to identify best practices for Community Service Learning (CSL) in the next fifty years.  For more information and resources from the workshop, please contact Nina Roberts, Ph.D., ICCE Faculty Director with questions: nroberts@sfsu.edu; x8-6473
