Faculty Institute on Community Engaged Learning & Teaching

What is the Faculty Institute on Community Engaged Learning & Teaching?

Want your students to help advance research with real-world implications? Want to make a course more relevant to contemporary issues? Interested in deepening student learning while building their skills for making a difference? Have a community partner in other areas of your life you want to bring in to your teaching? Perhaps you just want to incorporate an engaged element into an already existing course.

During this two-day institute, faculty develop a community-engaged course and connect with peers interested in community-engaged pedagogy.

A research stipend will be provided to faculty who participate in both days of the institute.

CELT is co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching Innovation and the Office of Engagement Initiatives.

Who can attend?

The institute is open to Cornell faculty and academic staff. All disciplines are welcome and encouraged to participate. The institute is aimed at faculty who would like to make community-engaged service-learning a major focus of their teaching and are interested in gaining insights on how to accomplish this.
