Learning how to include service learning in courses

A Service-Learning Course Construction workshop held in October at Seattle University’s Campion Ballroom will allow two- and four-year faculty and staff to learn more about constructing courses that include service learning elements.

*Connecting faculty and community members who are experienced in service learning courses with workshop attendees hoping to learn more

*Helping workshop attendees plan and craft a service-learning course

*Offering resources and support for actions taken after the workshop

The cost to attend is $25, and includes refreshments, lunch and workshop materials. To register, go to Washington Campus Compact’s website, http://www.wacampuscontact.org/events.html. The registration deadline is Friday, Oct. 14.
