Posted by Campus Compact on June 1, 2021

With the COVID-19 outlook brightening, get critical training and support as you continue to adapt to online and hybrid teaching and pivot towards in-person learning again this fall. Regardless of the setting, the Fusion Course offers virtual instruction for how to integrate community engagement methodologies into existing curricula to improve the quality of course delivery and foster student engagement.

Two sessions to be offered this Spring and Summer:

  • June 7 – June 11
  • June 21 – June 25

The curriculum for this program aims to:

  • Introduce faculty to best practices in community-based and problem-based learning pedagogy
  • Introduce faculty to best practices in engaged online and hybrid teaching and building community online
  • Explore the potential benefits and challenges, as well as best practices, of using community-based learning in online, hybrid or in-person courses
  • Introduce faculty to and model helpful online learning tools, techniques, and technologies

As a result of their participation in this course, each faculty member will:

  • Identify a course in which they could fuse community-based learning with online or hybrid learning
  • Learn about and select resources, tools, and strategies that will help to implement that course
  • Create a blueprint/outline for a future course that integrates community-based learning in an online, hybrid or in-person course
  • Be part of an expanded network of educators from across the country who are dedicated to community-based learning

Anticipated benefits for students:

  • A more engaged education and online or hybrid experience
  • Development of 21st-century skills
  • Hands-on experience rooted in addressing vital community issues and assets
