COURSE DESIGNATION FORM

The CEL course approval form and syllabus should clearly demonstrate learning outcomes for community engagement and have a clear plan for course reflection.

Community-Engaged Learning (Service-Learning) is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community engagement with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities

Reflection: A key component of Community-Engaged Learning is regular reflection, which connects the students’ community-based experiences to the learning goals for the course. If your syllabus does not specifically address reflection, please attach documentation that demonstrates the role of this practice in your course.  Examples of reflection include class discussions, journal entries, papers, videos, or presentations.  

PLEASE ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS ABOUT THE COURSE:

7. Please check all Community-Engaged Learning Outcomes that your course will include. If these outcomes do not fully describe the learning outcomes for your course, please add your own. It is an expectation that all courses help to increase civic awareness, skills, and commitment. Additional resources can be provided by CCE for courses that don’t inherently meet one of these outcomes.

9. Please indicate which community partner(s) you intend to work with and describe the project to be completed. If you have not yet confirmed your community partner, please indicate possibilities. Explain how this community engaged learning or research is addressing a real community need that has been identified by the community.

10. All Community-Engaged Learning designated courses must include the following Community-Engaged Learning definition on the course Syllabus: 

Community Engaged Learning, or Service-Learning, is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. As part of this course, students will be given the opportunity to apply course content to a real, community-identified need in a context of partnership and reciprocity.
