“For over 10 years, I have been helping faculty members and community leaders to work together to benefit both students and the people they serve.  By working with hundreds of professors and community leaders, I’ve learned a great deal about appropriate goal setting, what works, needed infrastructure, and how to anticipate and avoid pitfalls. This session will give practical information to move from concept to practice.”
~ Maureen Shubow Rubin
Webinar Presenter
This course will help service-learning faculty to prepare for and design collaborative community partnerships that will help students achieve desired learning outcomes while maximizing their service to the community. 

Participants will learn how to:
  1. Design and implement courses that set realistic goals and have all required elements in place to meet them
  2. Prepare for the initial meeting with community partners
  3. Collaborate with community partners to arrive at mutually agreeable and beneficial goals
  4. Get continual feedback and create on-going communication that will spot problems immediately and lead to an agreeable resolution
  5. Understand appropriate roles, responsibilities and expectations for everyone involved
Who should attend?
Both faculty who are new to the service-learning experience and faculty who want to bring all the elements of a successful class into sharper focus can benefit from the webinar.  Service-learning administrators and new and existing community partners will also benefit.  Participants in the Spring 2009 Webinar on Service Learning Basics can also build on their initial session.
