New Community Engaged Learning Course for Teaching Staff

Friday, November 20, 2020 - 16:15

This Campus Engage Community Engaged Learning professional development short course is an introductory programme for teaching staff in higher education.
The course explores the basic concepts and practical steps on how to integrate community engaged learning into any teaching curriculum. The course is built around a series of video tutorials, solo and group activities, a selection of academic and grey reading material, and online case studies with community partners, students and academics.
The course is 25-hours learner effort and is undertaken over a 6-week period, after which learners can claim their digital badge in Community Engaged Learning from the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning (NFETL)

The launch event for this course will take place on November 23rd at 1pm and will showcase high impact case studies, course content, intended course learning outcomes, and timelines. It will bring together expert teaching staff, students and community partners to discuss ‘how to’ implement CEL into any curriculum; build partnerships for success; and enhance students’ skills. Sign-up for first delivery of the course will open in late November, limited places available. The course will be delivered online, across Irish higher education from Spring 2021.
