Fall 2021 Enhancement Day

Option #1 - Great Room

"Culture of Engaged Learning: Study Away and Academic Service-Learning"

This is an On Campus Only session

Time: 11-11:50 a.m.

Attendance Location: On-campus; Yellowjacket Union, Great Room

Facilitators: Katelyn Baumann and Anya Russom

Description: Through this session, participants will come to understand the benefits of expanding their course offerings and programs to include coordinated Academic Service-Learning (AS-L) and Study Away opportunities. We will explore the idea of international education through unique partnerships that provide faculty and students the chance to engage with a broad range of multicultural voices while also completing an intentionally designed and mutually beneficial AS-L project with a community partner. In this session, we will discuss the goals and framework for both AS-L and Study Away, provide examples of partnerships that are ongoing and in progress, discuss opportunities for student research and internships, take input from participants on how they might become more engaged, and expand upon other opportunities for those who want to include international voices in the classroom but are unable to travel. This session is open to all faculty and staff who wish to learn more about international education, AS-L, and their benefits to our students, faculty, institution and global community.
