Critical Community Engaged Learning: From Theory to Practice

The "Critical Community Engaged Learning: From Theory to Practice" learning community will provide a space for interested practitioners to come together to read current scholarship on critical community engaged learning (CEL) (critical service-learning) and participate in dialogue to collectively produce a manuscript that highlights current, and informs future, practice. Conversations will be guided by current community engaged learning scholarship as well as needs and interests of the MSU community. We hope this group will further the conversation and focus on critically informed literature that continues to enhance the connection between theory and practice.

Check out the list of all of the 2022-23 Learning Communities, generously sponsored by the MSU Office of Faculty and Academic Staff Development.
