The UNO Service Learning Academy (SLA) is working with UNO faculty, preschool through 12th grade (P-12) teachers, and community partners to creatively adapt service learning projects to remote learning. Service learning projects will be highlighted throughout the remote learning phase.
Showcasing Service Learning’s New Online Delivery Platform
This week, the Service Learning Academy released the Spring 2020 SLA Newsletter featuring stories from service learning faculty members and community partners who adapted their projects and research after the transition to UNO’s remote/online learning mode effective March 30 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The overall theme of this newsletter issue focuses on the service learning opportunities available through an online delivery platform. In addition to sharing project testimonials, the SLA team members also provide recommendations for the development and implementation of future online service learning courses.
“I hope you enjoy reading the stories about how our partners were creative and collaborative together, and how students advocated for change in and outside of a pandemic,” said Julie Dierberger, SLA Paul Sather Distinguished Director. “That the Service Learning Academy is committed to innovating, no matter the delivery platform is what we hope you read in these stories.”
