Service Learning Seminar 2020
July 13-17, 2020 | CEC
The Service Learning Seminar is a week-long professional development opportunity for P-12, after school, and UNO teachers and administrators to learn about service learning as a method of instruction.
The goal of the Service Learning Seminar is to partner UNO faculty, P-12 educators, after-school program facilitators, and community partners to develop service learning projects. Participants receive compensation for attending as well as future project support including an assigned graduate assistant and resources. The seminar addresses the following learning outcomes:
- Increase awareness of the Omaha community, and community partner needs, assets, and opportunities.
- Understand the P-12 Service Learning Standards for Quality Practice.
- Understand the benefits of service learning and its connection to other key frameworks.
- Building collaborative relationships and begin project planning.
- Create a quality service learning experience.
Typically the SLA hosts the seminar at the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center on UNO's campus as a 4.5 day professional development experience; however, this year’s seminar will be modified due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Service Learning Seminar will be condensed to a virtual format during the week of July 13-17, 2020-that will allow participants an opportunity to collaborate in an interactive environment on the fundamentals of service learning.
