Intersecting Educational Development and Community Engagement: Research-Informed Strategies
Date & Time
Monday, March 25, 2019, 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM
The professional and institutional spaces occupied by educational developers and by S-LCE professionals overlap in significant and meaningful ways. However, the pathways into roles, professional and educational backgrounds of those that find themselves in them, and the influence of the institutional structure and mission may differ significantly across individuals and contexts. Building upon the presenters’ recently released edited volume, Reconceptualizing Faculty Development in Service-Learning/Community Engagement, the overarching goal of this session is for participants to analyze and situate their work in an array of best practices, emerging with ideas, resources, and support structures that advance S-LCE faculty development on their campuses. Participants will make progress toward: (1) Identifying research-informed practices in supporting S-LCE faculty; (2) Learning approaches to reconciling and navigating factors that influence educational engagement in S-LCE (e.g., P&T practices, community tensions, student resistance); and (3) Developing strategies that will advance S-LCE faculty development on their campuses.
