Topic: The Global is Local: Enhancing Language Learning through Service
In this session facilitators will focus on how service-learning can best be implemented in language courses. Drawing on examples from language faculty, service-learning theories, research on best practices, the facilitators in this interactive session will share knowledge and create opportunities for participants to discuss and imagine their own service-learning courses. By the end of the session, participants should be able to describe how service-learning can operate in foreign language courses, suggest a few ideas for implementation that could work in their courses or departments, and identify resources available in their communities.
