The 12th Institute was facilitated by national experts in service-learning, including health professional faculty and community leaders who have developed successful service-learning partnerships. A unique and effective component of the Institute was a mentoring model in which participants worked in small groups and as individuals with mentors (the term we use for institute instructors) to further shape their own action plans for service-learning.
The institute featured content and sessions for practitioners new to service-learning and those with more experience (faculty, staff and community partners). Mentors assisted participants to deepen their understanding of service-learning, develop a plan for service-learning sustainability, and form a peer support network that is continuing after the close of the Institute.
intensive interactive workshops and small group sessions, participants learned
about these topics and more:
