CCEL Course Creation
In community engaged learning courses, experiences are employed as a learning resource alongside readings, lectures, discussions, or labs. Community engagement is integrated into the syllabus and classroom approach and is therefore required of all students enrolled in the course. These courses require up to 20 hours of engagement (the instructor may offer more), robust written assignments, and reflective classroom activity.
The Center for Community Engaged Learning endeavors to support Fordham faculty in engaged learning course creation and implementation, as well as in research endeavors related to community engagement. We offer:
- Faculty workgroups to support course creation
- Faculty forums to support course pathways
- One-on-one advising sessions
- Syllabus workshops and sample syllabi
- Matching with community partners
- Administrative support toward course assignation and course pathways
- Grants for course expenses
- Program fees
- Speaker fees
- Community partner compensation
- National speakers
- Biannual symposia
