Remember this quick switch in teaching and learning is likely uncharted territory for us all, including your students and community partners.  High quality community based learning isn’t about logging a certain number of hours, it is about being responsive to community partner needs. Perhaps at this time, the ultimate way to be engaged in the community is in ways that are grass-roots and emerging as the situation unfolds.
