November 4: Assessment in Service-Learning and Community Engagement Beyond Student Learning: Community Impact, Partnership Quality, and Faculty Learning with Patti Clayton.
Service-learning and community engagement (SLCE) involve a range of processes and outcomes that practitioner-scholars need to inquire into in order to design effectively, refine over time, build knowledge, and maximize impact. In this working lunch session, we will consider some general assessment issues and focus our attention on three under-developed arenas: community outcomes, partnership quality, and faculty learning.
Frameworks will be provided for conceptualizing assessment as well as example approaches in each of these arenas. Participants will join one of three groups, engaging with these tools and sharing their experiences, ideas, and questions within and across these three arenas. This session will provide concrete possibilities for enhancing the design, implementation, and assessment of SLCE in our own contexts. No charge to attend. Light lunch will be provided.
Please RSVP (with your indication as to which area you are interested in – community outcomes, partnership quality, or faculty learning) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
