One Bright Idea: The Flipped Service-Learning Class

Thursday, October 24, 9:30 am to 10:30 am, in 023 Dunbar Library.

Led by Marjorie McLellan; Jennifer Subban; Christa Agiro.

Marjorie McLellan, Jennifer Subban, and Christa Agiro received a Teaching Innovation Grant in order to experiment with the idea of a "flipped class" for service learning experiences. The "flipped class" format permits students and faculty to collaborate with one another and with community partners in the field during class time to fulfill part of the service learning requirement for a course. Each class meets in the classroom for part of the semester; but rather than relying on students performing the service outside of class, around their individual schedules, students and faculty are in the field together.
