Three-Day Community-Based Learning Workshop Open to All Faculty in June

March 31, 2014 —  

CBL Workshops

Students in Cyndi Rickards' Prison, Society and You CBL course

The College of Arts and Sciences and the Lindy Center for Civic Engagement will co-sponsor an intensive, three-day community-based learning (CBL) workshop for full-time faculty, June 24-26, 2014. After completing the workshop, faculty will receive a $500 stipend and are expected to develop and teach a CBL course.

The training will be held at the Dornsife Extension Center on days one and three. Sessions will include foundations and framework for community-based learning and partnerships. Students, faculty and community partners will offer hands-on advice and mentorship to guide a meaningful CBL course. Day two will be facilitated by the Think Tank members within Graterford Correctional Institution and will include active learning pedagogy and rich discussion of “embracing discomfort” within a CBL course. At the conclusion of the workshop, faculty will have a solid foundation in which to begin designing their course. Faculty will receive additional support and guidance throughout the planning process.

This workshop is open to all Drexel full-time faculty. Space is limited. For questions or additional information, please contact Cyndi Rickards,
