Rising Star

Although community-engaged service may be the most apparent form of engaged scholarship, at times there are misconceptions regarding its merit. From my experience, community-engaged service may be minimized and discredited as an appropriate form of scholarly service by those who are unable to distinguish it from general community service. Finally, many questions arise over the effectiveness in supporting CES in a non-traditional (online) course.

Rising Star

A growing trend in higher education is the integration of community engagement with student learning objectives. This session, lead by Dr. Mario Gil, will provide information about the potential and challenges of using service learning and team-based approaches, with a research focus, in a upper-level, undergraduate course. Dr. Gil will also share his experiences teaching psychology courses at UTRGV and other institutions. At the completion of this session, the attendee is expected to learn: 1. How to identify and work with a community partner, 2. How to design a hybrid course that involves a significant amount of team-based work, 3. How students generally feel about hybrid courses and team-based work, and 4. About integrating research into your course.
