2012 Lake Superior Service-Learning Regional Conference
This regional conference was held for the first time in April of 2010. Intended to be held bi-annually, the LSSL Conference provides the opportunity to learn from nationally recognized service-learning leaders, network with other educators and service-learning professionals across the region, and investigate the research and best practices supporting service-learning. In addition, attendees will acquire hands-on skills to apply and integrate service-learning as an evidence-based teaching strategy. This conference will be held at the Unviersity of Minnesota Duluth on March 29-30, 2012.
The theme of this year's conference is Creating Sustainable Partnerships through Service-Learning. Sessions will focus on:
- The Community: (e.g. win-win partnerships; impact; sustaining programs when facing economic barriers; community-based research)
- The Classroom: (e.g. from theory to practice; research; student outcomes; using The Standards for Quality Practice)
- The Institution: (e.g. engaged departments; overcoming barriers at the institutional level; matching missions of institutions and agencies)
