Faculty Development Program on Implementation of Service-Learning in Engineering Education
March 5, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:48 pm
Engineering education has witnessed an increase in the adoption of service-learning as pedagogy and an approach to building partnerships with local communities. Service-learning is defined as a credit-bearing educational experience in which students participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs and reflects on the service activity. Service-learning prepares students with 21st-century competencies through the opportunities to critique, identify, collaborate and solve real-time problems. Prior research has reportedly identified that service-learning experiences and guided reflections help students understand their discipline, develop an enhanced sense of civic responsibility, and benefit the community. The development of civic outcomes among students is also emphasized in Indian National Education Policy which envisions an education system that would instill ethics, human, and constitutional values among the students. This 4-week workshop is designed for engineering faculty who have expressed interest in initiating service-learning programs in their institution and starting community engagement. Each week of the program will focus on various important aspects such as initiation, design, implementation, and evaluation of service-learning courses in the engineering curriculum. Participants will be expected to attend a 1-hour virtual session every week and will be provided with weekly assignments that will guide them through the process of implementing service learning in their respective institutions All the assignments will be a part of a design workbook which the participants will be encouraged to use to make notes and solve weekly alignments from the faculty development program.
