CCE Sponsors Faculty Development Series

On March 10, 2009, the Center for Community Engagement held its first sponsored Faculty Development Series event to discuss the fourth bullet of Wesleyan’s mission statement that indicates graduating students will be able to “demonstrate their local and global citizenship through service.” The workshop engaged faculty in a discussion about the differences between “service” and “engagement”, how the institution as a whole can engage students in current issues, and the various ways service-learning is assessed.

Within the next few months, the series will continue the discussion with workshops on experiential learning, the use of technology and course development strategies. The series will conclude in an open retreat in June 2009 for faculty to develop strategies and plans for course integration via community-based research, policy research, direct service-learning, issue-based learning and more.
