Service Learning Labs: Integrating experiential learning across a BSW Curriculum – #BPDTX16

144 views

Published on

Day 4 of #BPDTX16 for me and my last presentation will be at 9:30 AM today. I will be talking about the work I have been doing with my colleague, Dr. Scott Batey, along with many other partners at UAB and in the Birmingham community. Unfortunately, Scott was not able to attend BPD this year, but he feels confident I won’t mess up the presentation. For our session, we really wanted to highlight the development of service learning labs in our BSW curriculum as a case study, hopefully offering tips and ideas for others wanting to incorporate more service learning into their assignments, courses & curricula.
