CBL Faculty Summer Workshop Keynote Presentation

LEADing with Community: Developing the Transformative Educational Capacity of Community-Based Learning

On Wednesday, June 2 from 12:30 - 1:30 pm, Dr. Patrick M. Green, Executive Director, Center for Engaged Learning at Loyola University Chicago, will offer a keynote presentation, "LEADing with Community: Developing the Transformative Educational Capacity of Community-Based Learning" via Zoom.

Building upon the critical service-learning framework (Mitchell, 2008) and the lens of Ignatian Pedagogy, the session will discuss how community-based learning has the potential to lead to a transformative educational experience that is key to Jesuit education. Discussing the “LEADing with Community” approach that centers community partners as co-educators, participants will engage in dialogue around community-based learning strategies to develop mutually beneficial relationships with partners and move toward reciprocity. Participants will reflect upon and begin to articulate an action plan for how they will adopt/adapt strategies with their own courses/programs to center community partners and anchor learning in a justice-orientation.

Interested faculty and administrators are invited to join for this keynote presentation. Please email community@scranton.edu for more information.
