Teaching & learning

Beyond the classroom!

Community Engaged Learning involves fostering mutually beneficial partnerships that enhance student learning, address societal concerns, and improve quality of life by co-creating partnerships that meet community needs.

Community Engagement in Teaching & Learning

This is a teaching and learning strategy that uses reflection to link community needs with academic course objectives to enrich the educational experience of students, teach civic responsibility and meet the needs of the community.

These activities include, but are not limited to: service-learning, field visit/experience, guest speakers, event planning, job shadow, problem-based learning, internships, preceptorship, externship, clinicals, student teaching, course-based volunteering, experiential learning, product development/design, program development/design, and independent study.
