With plenty of great things happening in experiential learning at Brock, “Experiential Lunch Conversations” are continuing this semester.
This is a way of engaging as a campus in meaningful conversation about teaching and learning, as well as how we might provide opportunities for our students to apply their learning in high-impact ways. Short presentations (approximately 15 minutes) from faculty, staff, students or community partners doing exciting things in experiential education will open the sessions, followed by questions and open discussion.
These sessions are also casual – all are welcome to join in and to bring their lunch.
Here are the sessions scheduled for the upcoming weeks:
• Monday, March 14 at 11:30 a.m.: “Skills, experience, or credentials…what are employers looking for today?” hosted by Kate Cassidy (Youth University)
• Thursday, March 17 at noon: “Through Their Eyes: Connecting our minds, hearts and hands through service learning” hosted by Paula Gardner (Health Sciences)
• Tuesday, March 22 at 11:30 a.m.: “Student Perspectives on Alternative Reading Week Trips” hosted by Kristen Smith (Student Life) and students from the February 2016 trips
• Wednesday, March 23 at noon: “Community Professional Service: A Commission Model” hosted by Debra McLauchlan (Teacher Education)
All sessions will take place in TH135, CPI’s new active learning classroom in the basement of the Schmon Tower near Career Services.
If you have a topic you would like to contribute to these discussions, contact Sandy Howe at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 905-688-5550 ext. 4126. If you would like to bring students or community partners with you to share their experiences related to your topic, their voice would be a wonderful addition to these conversations.
