Service-learning is a teaching pedagogy that brings NC State’s mission to the classroom. As a form of ‘Engaged Learning’, service-learning is shown to strengthen student academic learning, increase multiple dimensions of personal development, strengthen career preparation, and deepen civic engagement.
Faculty at NC State who use service-learning report great satisfaction in the energy and enlightenment that comes to the teaching-learning experience of their classes.
The Office of Outreach & Engagement is investing in expanding the number of service-learning faculty and courses at NC State and invite applications for the new Service-Learning Faculty Associates Program.
The application is open until May 10th. Click HERE to apply.
Service-Learning Faculty Associates will:
- Share a day of training during a service-learning institute on August 13, 2019;
- Be part of a faculty cohort with an experienced faculty mentor throughout 2019-20 as they work on plans for a course (existing or new) designed to implement service-learning;
- Be matched with a trained service-learning student teaching assistant; and
- Implement a course incorporating service-learning between January and December 2020.
Current and interested practitioners of service-learning are invited to an informal gathering to meet other faculty practitioners, share ideas, ask questions, make connections. Join us for some ‘Pub Pedagogy’ at Mitch’s Tavern on Monday, May 6th, 4 – 6 pm.
