Note - Cancelled HONR-LA 3304-005. (2012-Jan-17)

General Honors Courses
HONR 2111-001:
(Gustafson) Community Service Learning Seminar [MTWRF 800-1150A]
This course offers a brief but intensive introduction to the history, theory, and practice of community service learning. The structure and format of the course will be in keeping with the chief pedagogical assumption of community service learning: that some of the richest academic experiences are both intramural and extramural. The focus here will not just be on community service, but how that service contributes in a meaningful way to understanding a specific disciplinary problem or topic. Students will be expected to keep a journal that tracks the progress of their thinking on this topic or problem, and at the end of the term write an essay on the relation between intramural and extramural knowledge in their field.
For more information, contact Dr. Kevin Gustafson.
