Higher education, like other institutions in American society, is under increased scrutiny to articulate and enact its public purpose. This pressure comes through expectations of work in regional or community development, performance and accountability metrics, and a heightened emphasis on civic learning outcomes. Community-engaged teaching is one of the many strategies that can support the public purposes of higher education, and when done well, it has the potential to support the development of civic-minded graduates and professionals. How can the strategic realignment of internal resources support this teaching strategy and reach this goal for student learning and faculty work?

Experiential Learning is an instructional approach based on the idea that ideal learning occurs through experience. It combines active learning with hands-on experiences, abstract concepts, connection of concepts to the students' lives, and reflection, in an effort to engage all learning styles.
This is a great opportunity to learn more about implementing experience-rich activities that are central to experiential learning. It's also a good, free and convenient opportunity for professional development that can be included in tenure and promotion packets.
This interactive workshop will explore various reflective strategies as design elements of learning experiences. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in reflective activities and use these activities as building blocks for future programs and assignments.
Culturally competent individuals cope more effectively when dealing with the unknown and can communicate more effectively and respond more effectively to miscommunication when dealing with people from varying backgrounds. This workshop will focus on infusing diversity into the campus from the first day on campus to the last day.
