What is service learning?
Service learning is an experiential, collaborative method of teaching that connects academic learning to community-identified service opportunities.
Service learning is a high-impact teaching practice that provides real-world application of classroom curriculum. Service learning promotes workforce skills such as communication, leadership, problem-solving, and critical thinking while utilizing asset-based community engagement.
In addition to a modest stipend ($400) or professional development fund ($400) for attending the Seminar, participants receive support for co-created service learning experiences including logistics, purchasing project materials, resources, and other project expenses as approved. Please note, service learning project materials are only available for classes connected to a UNO classroom.
