Service Learning in Higher Education: Experiences from Occupational Therapy
from 12:00 PM to 01:45 PM
York College's Mission is to enable "students to grow as passionate, engaged learners with the confidence to realize their intellectual and human potential as individuals and global citizens." This workshop will provide information on best practices in service learning (SL) in higher education to increase faculty knowledge about SL pedagogies and how they can promote educational goals. Information and research based upon SL experiences in occupational therapy education will be shared. Participants will consider how to apply SL pedagogies and strategies within their disciplines to enable students' application of knowledge to 'real life' concerns and to advance students' academic development, critical thinking, and communication and interpersonal skills.
