Community Engaged Learning course: registration open for teachers

The first edition of the Community Engaged Learning (CEL) course will start in February 2023. The course aims to support teachers in teaching CEL. In 7 sessions, you will discuss the characteristics of CEL, what collaboration with community partners can look like and work on (further) developing your own course. Would you like to learn more about CEL and get practical tools for implementation? Then read on and register for the course.

For whom?

The course is intended for lecturers at UU, UCU, UCR or UMCU who are involved in CEL courses or will soon start working with CEL. Depending on their learning requirement and context, lecturers may focus on either designing or delivering CEL courses, or both. A BKO is not required, but we do assume familiarity with educational concepts. We can provide literature for this if required.

Content and structure

The course consists of 7 meetings and runs from February 2023 to June 2023. The language of instruction is Dutch (later on the course will also be available in English). The first meetings focus on the characteristics of CEL and the design process. This covers topics such as assessment, reflection, coaching and ethical questions. Afterwards, participants themselves will work on a product that contributes to the (further) development of their own CEL course. Participants learn from and with each other and develop into a network of teacher-experts on CEL.

More information and registration

Registrations are open until 13 January 2023. There is room for 12 participants. In the selection, we aim for equal distribution among the faculties. We also consider involvement in CEL teaching and experience in teaching design and development.
