Join with likeminded educators to experience an effective approach for integrating service learning as a teaching pedagogy that meets the needs of 21st century learners. Whatever your setting, approach, and whether you are new to service learning or more advanced, discover:

  • why transferable skills become enlivened during the service learning process
  • how engaging teaching practices become easier to implement
  • practical strategies that can assist you to embed the concept and best practice of service learning in your school or organization

During these two days we will draw from the expertise of all who attend, as well as the knowledge from author and international consultant Cathryn Berger Kaye. The centerpiece will be understanding and experiencing the Five Stages of Service Learning to ensure confidence in implementing a robust program. Highlights include: service learning guiding principles and concepts, six entry points for the service learning process, 21st century competencies integration, transdisciplinary curricular mapping and design, action research methods, community partnerships, and an in-depth look at reflection. With highly interactive sessions, we will all advance with ideas, strategies and connections that will continue long beyond our time together. Discover how service learning informs, engages and prepares your students to think critically, care deeply and participate in significant actions as they contribute to the common good.
