As of spring of 2014 Service Learning courses are designated in Peoplesoft. We ask all faculty who teach service learning to complete this submission process in order to get your course designated. Having courses designated will allow the University and the Office of Service Learning have accurate service learning course information for reporting and quality control purposes.
Application is below.
Once submitted, your application will go to the Office of Service Learning and will be reviewed by the Service Learning Committee.
In completing this form and upon receiving the service learning designation you can anticipate several benefits:
1 – Students will have clear expectations of service learning activities and participation when they sign up for your class.
2 – Academic Advisors will have the ability to communicate about service learning specific courses with students.
3 – You will have access to support from the Offices of Public Engagement and Service Learning in addition to the Institute for Teaching and Learning for your course.
4 – Service Learning courses can be reported in Digital Measures self-evaluation at the end of the year under categories such as “Teaching Innovations and Other Pedagogical activities”; “Other Instructional Activities”; “Public and Community Service”; “Other Industry/Faculty Collaboration”.
5 – You can contribute to a growing group of engaged scholars.
