Community Exchange is a professional development series for faculty interested in developing experiential learning courses. Community Exchange workshops are offered each fall semester and complement University Outreach’s Experiential Learning/Service-Learning Support Program.Do you intend to:
- Support the UM-Flint strategic priority to expand experiential learning into all UM-Flint academic programs?
- Sign one of your courses up for the Civic Engagement Course Indicator, or have you done so already?
- Refresh a course with an experiential learning or service-learning component, or do you want to refine one you’ve taught?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, this workshop is for you!
