Overview

The Faculty Fellows Seminar is an opportunity to learn about service-learning pedagogy and integrate it into an appropriate course in the company of friends and colleagues from a number of departments (and institutions). It is also an opportunity to learn about other types of engaged scholarship in addition to service-learning.

Faculty Fellows:

  • investigate the theories and models of learning behind service-learning;
  • discover how others have successfully integrated service-learning into their own disciplines and courses at Loyola and at colleges and universities nationally and internationally;
  • explore syllabi and principles of good practice by prominent leaders in their fields and academe;
  • provide and receive feedback on course development in interactive small groups
  • engage in a comprehensive look at structured reflection and its role in integrating diverse forms of learning;
  • meet community partners and explore reciprocal partnerships;
  • inquire into methodologies of assessment and evaluation;
  • review the ‘nuts and bolts’ of teaching service-learning courses at Loyola;
  • learn about various forms of engaged scholarship in addition to service-learning; and
  • integrate service-learning into one of their courses so that they comply with Loyola’s service-learning definition and course criteria for best practices (i.e., for successful designation as service-learning courses following the seminar).
