This afternoon David Mathews Center for Civic Life Executive Director Chris McCauley and I did a pre-conference workshop at the Gulf-South Summit on Service Learning and Community Engagement at our Cornerstone Member Auburn University.
Our workshop, “Are We Walking on the Same Path?“, focused on engaged learning from the community partner perspective and equipped participants to design experiences which align community partner outcomes with student learning objectives.
I promised the group I would share some key resources with them, and what better way to do that then via this blog!
