CEWIL Webinar - Exploring Service-Learning in the COVID19 Context

2:00 PM, May 28, 2020


Community Service Learning (CSL) is a form of Work-Integrated Learning that integrates meaningful community service with classroom instruction and critical reflection to enrich the learning experience and strengthen communities. In practice, students work in partnership with a community-based organization to apply their disciplinary knowledge to a challenge identified by the community. Reciprocity and mutual benefit are central to partnerships for Service-Learning. How this is done through crisis times is a test of postsecondary institutions’ commitment to deep community engagement.

Through this webinar, Service-Learning practitioners from across Canada discuss how projects and partnerships with community are quickly adapted as a result of COVID-19. Our panelists represent four different postsecondary institutions and will discuss challenges and opportunities as we navigate these unprecedented times with our partners and our students.
