Service Learning Expert to Conduct Workshops for Faculty
By the view Staff Article published February 23, 2004
Patti Clayton, coordinator of North Carolina State University’s Service-Learning Program, will conduct several workshops at UVM on March 8 and 9. Clayton is an expert in developing and refining techniques to engage students in high quality reflection. Courtney Lamontagne, associate director of the sponsoring Office of Community-University Partnerships and Service-Learning, calls Clayton “a superb trainer and facilitator.” March 1 is the deadline for registering for the workshops.
The Introduction to Service-Learning workshop, on March 8, is designed for instructors who are relatively unfamiliar with service-learning. It will introduce participants to the theory, structures and key components that underlie high quality service-learning courses, with opportunity for discussion. This workshop will be followed by discipline-based small group discussions.
The Advanced Workshop on Reflection, on March 8 and 9, is designed for instructors who already are involved in service-learning or other forms of experiential education, such as supervising practicum students and interns.
