Place-Based Engaged Teaching, Learning and Scholarship: Northside Orientation and Opportunities.

The Community Service-Learning Center at the U of M is partnering with community engagement staff from the Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center (UROC) and Minneapolis Community and Technical College to host a one-day faculty development workshop focused on place-based learning with an emphasis on North Minneapolis.

This workshop is scheduled for Thursday, May 17th, 2012 from 8:30am-4:30pm. Space is limited. If you are interested in participating in this unique faculty workshop, please RSVP to Laurel Hirt, at hirtx002@umn.edu by Friday, May 4, 2012.

The workshop will provide an opportunity to engage with and learn from Northside neighborhood residents and leaders in order to enhance your engaged teaching and research practices. The experience will include conversations, transportation and visits to a series of local North Minneapolis community organizations, lunch at a local restaurant,
opportunities to network with other faculty, and a panel of faculty who will share their experiences with place-based engagement work. Visit here for the tentative agenda.
