Implementing Liberating Service Learning
Liberating service learning is a practice that stands the institutionalized service learning model on its head. Rather than putting student learning first, service second, community building third, and social change last, we reverse the order. This interactive workshop will begin with a brief presentation on how to put social change first, supported by community organizing, research forms of service, and collective learning. Participants will then discuss the implications of this model for their own work.
This is a small, interactive workshop. The Zoom meeting information will be provided after you register. For questions about registration, contact Claire Reeger (email@example.com).
