This course is part of the CBL Professional Development Continuum for PCC Faculty.

Do you want to integrate community-based learning (service learning) into your courses? Are you still a little unsure about how to do so? This course assists instructors in understanding the core concepts of community-based learning as a pedagogical technique. It provides a sociological and philosophical context regarding community-based learning. It offers guidance and practice in developing assignments and assessments for community-based learning, framing the community-based learning experience for students, identifying community needs, and connecting with the community partner.
After taking this course participants will be able to:
  • Analyze the value of community-based learning as a pedagogical technique
  • Identify the learning objectives in the course curriculum which can be met using community-based learning
  • Brainstorm ideas for a discipline-specific assignment which addresses a community need while meeting course objectives with colleagues and mentors.

Due to campus closures, this course will be offered virtually via Zoom.
  • Registrants will receive materials in advance and a Zoom link to join.
  • Participants will receive an invitation for individual consultation with a CBL Faculty Coordinator.
