Upcoming Opportunities for Faculty

Equity Centered Community Engaged Learning Community of Practice – Spring 2024 

This Community of Practice is designed for faculty members looking to learn more or refresh their knowledge of community-engaged learning. Using the 2022 book Faculty Service-Learning Guidebook: Enacting Equity-Centered Teaching, Partnerships, and Scholarship, group members will have the opportunity to work on creating a new course, revise a current course, or (re)design a major course assignment. The Community of Practice will hold 4 meetings in the spring 2024 semester as well as a final gathering in August or September 2024. In addition to presentations from guest presenters, group members will have the opportunity to share and receive feedback from peers about their ongoing revision projects. A $1000 stipend will be provided to group members for session participation and submission of a final product (syllabus or course assignment). 

Group meetings: 12:30-2:30pm, Fridays: February 2, March 1, April 5. (Lunch provided at meetings) Final Spring 24 meeting and Fall 24 meeting dates TBD by group members.  

To Apply: Please submit a letter of interest, by December 15, including proposed new or revised course or assignment to engage@dickinson.edu directed to Laura Megivern, Interim Executive Director of CCLA.
