Faculty Scholars in Community-Based Teaching and Learning Announced by Gephardt Institute

Community-based teaching and learning, also known as service-learning, is a pedagogy that is growing across all disciplines. These courses are distinguished by: learning activities in service to an organization or community; course content and assignments connected to the service; and faculty oversight.

The grants provide faculty members with financial support for curriculum development and implementation. Faculty scholars join previous grant recipients in a cohort that meets to discuss common challenges and share successful strategies in community-based teaching and learning.

The Gephardt Institute also offers technical expertise to faculty in key areas of community-based teaching and learning such as assignments reflecting on service, evaluation methods and tools for working effectively with community partners."

From the Program in Occupational Therapy: Christine Berg, PhD, OTR/L, assistant professor of occupational therapy and neurology in the School of Medicine, and Adam Pearson OTD '11, OTR/L, clinical specialist/occupational therapist in the School of Medicine. The “Applied Clinical Practice: Job and Volunteer Training Project” course is designed to provide master’s-level occupational therapy students with entry-level community health program development, analysis and implementation experience at The Bridge day shelter.
