“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ~ Nelson Mandela
The mission of the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning is to provide opportunities, resources and supportive communities to foster exemplary teaching, curricular innovation and professional development of the faculty.
Community-based Service Learning Institute
The Instructional Development Council, in collaboration with CATL and Campus Compact, hosted the first Community-based Service Learning Institute workshop. This one day professional development opportunity focused on institutionalizing service learning within departments.
This high impact practice addresses UWGB’s select mission to “enrich the quality of life for students and the community by embracing the educational value of diversity, promoting environmental sustainability, encouraging engaged citizenship, and serving as an intellectual, cultural and economic resource.” Six departments worked with community partners to develop action plans for strengthening curricular-based service learning opportunities that fulfill the needs of students and the local community.
Thank you to all who participated & keep up the great work!
