Webinar: Liberating Service Learning

May 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm
Zoom web conference,
Iowa Campus Compact Webinar

Facilitator: Randy R. Stoecker, University of Wisconsin - Madison Description:  “Institutionalized service learning,” has its priorities reversed. It starts by focusing on student learning, then on “service,” then on “community” and only then on any kind of social change. In “liberating service learning” I reverse that prioritization to start with change, then community, then “service” and finally learning, and also develop new philosophical foundations and practices for each concept. This webinar will show the problems with the institutionalized service learning and the potential of liberating service learning.

To sustain ourselves and enhance our impact, we must also go beyond simply adding more community-engaged courses, research projects, programs, and partnerships. We must understand the identities that shape our work, foster inclusive and equitable spaces for collaboration, support multiple forms of change- making, and integrate…
