Deadline for applications EXTENDED to Friday, Oct. 12th at 5pm!!
Every fall, a new faculty cohort comes together to satisfy their curiosity about service-learning and fulfill their need for professional development. The SL Faculty Cohort is an opportunity for instructors to convert a course of their own into a service-learning course. All full and part-time faculty (from any discipline) are eligible to apply for the cohort in early Fall. Each accepted cohort member receives a $500 stipend for their time and work during the year.
As a cohort, each instructor prepares a course for a service-learning assignment/project by attending two class sessions on service-learning pedagogy. Additionally, we meet throughout the year to discuss service-learning, particular projects & pedagogy we are trying to implement, and to troubleshoot as a course is in motion. In between the first two sessions, participants volunteer at a non-profit organization connected with the service-learning project they have in mind to use for their course.
The sessions are facilitated by Service-Learning Faculty Coordinators and our District Program Coordinator. Cohort members learn about the payoffs and pitfalls of service-learning, then develop an enriching, manageable, and sustainable service project that deepens their students’ experience of their course.
Participation in the Service-Learning Faculty Cohort is by application only. Applications for 2012-13 year are being accepted now! The deadline to apply for the SL Faculty Cohort is now extended to Friday, October 12th at 5pm. Applications can be turned in to the Service-Learning Program Office (SY, SS 215) or submitted via email to email@example.com.
