Assessment for Critical Service Learning: Multiple Audiences and Responsibilities
Friday, March 5 at 3 pm
Critical service learning takes a social change orientation, works to redistribute power, and seeks to develop authentic relationships. How do we assess these outcomes? And to whom are we responsible in our assessment: students, community, our institutions? We will focus on assessing our students, and think about how accountability to the community and institution can also improve our practice. Be prepared to think about how to assess an activity in your own course for its contribution to students’ critical learning?
