'Community-Engaged Learning in Remote and Online Environments: A Pathway to Success' - November 6
Join Buffalo State College colleagues for a national presentation through the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities, "Community-Engaged Learning in Remote and Online Environments: A Pathway to Success," on Friday November 6, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Presented by Drew Hemler, lecturer in the Health, Nutrtition, and Dietetics Department; Meghan Pereira, director of instructional design and training; Laura Rao, director of civic and community engagement; and Joy Guarino, professor of theater and service-learning faculty coordinator.
Transitioning to remote community-engaged learning during COVID-19 has been remarkably successful for faculty, students, and community partners at Buffalo State College. Join us to learn about how we successfully transitioned a mostly in-person service-learning program to mostly remote activities. Buffalo State has now learned that community-engaged learning can be successful in remote, online, or in-person classes and can help students learn academic concepts through experiential learning. Community-engaged learning leads to increased student engagement, success, retention, and graduation. Now more than ever, community-engaged learning can also help fill critical gaps in supports that community organizations are experiencing. In this session, participants will explore opportunities to connect academic content to community priority through remote and online learning and come away with strategies and project ideas, as well as learn from successful course experiences this past semester.
Register now. Buffalo State is a CUMU member, and registration and participation is included in our membership.
