On Thursday, April 18 Immaculata University hosted a Service-Learning Conference in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Council of Social Studies and the Pennsylvania Service-Learning Alliance. A networking lunch followed the conference.
The focus of the conference was on teaching and learning strategies that integrate meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. Through a range of hands-on activities, participants gained an understanding of the service learning process and acquired experience applying the process while generating ideas for potential service-learning projects that connect to academic standards and course learning objectives.
Facilitators for the Conference were:
- Christine Moran, Ph.D., associate professor of Education and service learning coordinator at Immaculata University
- Joan Lennon Liptrot, executive director of the Institute for Global Education and Service Learning
