CIE offering service-learning how-to workshops
Four one-hour workshops on service-learning -- its use, design and tools -- are being offered this spring by the Center for Instructional Excellence. The series is designed for faculty and program leaders.
Hundreds of courses at Purdue incorporate service-learning for its benefits to education and the community. As it has grown substantially in the past decade, CIE has provided numerous workshops and promoted research and scholarship in the area.
The current series includes four events this spring, two of which are scheduled already for a repeat in fall semester. Registration links for the spring workshops are included below and are embedded in the event titles at www.purdue.edu/cie/workshop/service-learning-workshops.html. Registration is required. A light meal will be served at each workshop.
