Community-based learning workshop offered to UMS educators

An online workshop series for educators, “Service Learning/Community-Based Learning: Making It Work for Your Students, Your Community, Your University,” will be offered in July to University of Maine System faculty members and graduate students.

Linda Silka, Senior Fellow at UMaine’s George Mitchell Center for Sustainability Solutions; Lois-Ann Kuntz, associate professor of psychology at UMM; and UMM adjunct instructor Edward Laine will lead the interactive workshops on designing and delivering community-engaged courses in traditional, online and hybrid formats. The series will be divided into three interactive training sessions conducted 9:30–11:30 a.m. on July 27, 29 and 31 via Zoom.

Applications are open for educators from UMaine and UMM. Members of other UMS campuses may apply starting June 15. Participants will be invited to a follow-up workshop in October. For more information and to apply, visit
