    Topic: The Global is Local: Enhancing Language Learning through Service

    • Stephanie Stokamer, Director, Center for Civic Engagement, Pacific University
    • Eric Lassahn, Director, Community Service Learning, Willamette University

    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.
