Posted by on November 21, 2003

The University of Wisconsin River Falls with the National Youth Leadership Council (NYLC) as a partner, is announcing an on-line Graduate Certificate Program in Service-Learning. The first cohort group will begin this January by registering for TED 721 Introduction to Service-Learning starting January 26, 2004. This offering is the first of five 3-credit courses to achieve the certificate. The initial sequence of courses is as follows:

TED 721 – Introduction to Service-Learning (January 26, 2004)
TED 722 – Advanced Service-Learning (March 22, 2004)
TED 724 – Service-Learning Reflection/Brain-based and Partnerships (Summer 2004)
TED 723 – Service-Learning Research/Assessment and Evaluation (September, 2004)
TED 737 – Service-Learning Practicum (October, 2004)

TED 721 – The introductory three credit course will introduce students to the basic core concepts of service learning. Service-learning is a teaching method and educational philosophy that connects service with learning linked to academic standards. It allows teachers to address a variety of learning styles by engaging youth in meaningful projects through service to schools and their communities.
