In this half-credit course, students will build an intellectual and practical framework to guide their work in volunteer settings in the local community. What does it mean to "help?" How do we assess the needs of community partners and build the knowledge and skills that will allow us to address those needs? What do we need to know and understand about the people with whom we work? What does research have to say about effective tutoring techniques and practices? How can we design meaningful learning experiences? How can we maximize not only our impact in the community, but our own growth and learning?
Note: students taking this course must be engaged in at least 80 minutes per week of community service in an educational setting throughout the semester and must complete this questionnaire ( https://forms.gle/ay9xaXGn1wbxriHJ7) before enrolling
