Engaged Learning during COVID

COVID-19 dramatically changed our campus experience this Spring and Summer. However, Engaged Learning is still thriving! This webinar series is intended to help faculty be aware and think creatively about how to approach their Engaged Learning courses with tools and help from the Center for Experiential Learning.
Engaged Learning courses may look and feel very different in Fall 2020, but in an effort to preserve the deep learning experiences of students, we encourage the guidelines found here: Engaged Learning Courses Guidelines for Fall 2020
