Service-Learning in Graduate Professional Education Webinar
Are you interested in implementing a service learning curriculum in a graduate professional education setting, but the challenges seem daunting?
This webinar will explore the challenges and opportunities involved in implementing service learning in a graduate professional education setting. We will discuss ways of overcoming challenges and tips for success. We will describe a few examples of existing curricula at UCSF, including learner and community partner perspectives.
The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is a leading university dedicated to promoting health worldwide through advanced biomedical research, graduate-level education in the life sciences and health professions, and excellence in patient care. It is the only UC campus in the 10-campus system dedicated exclusively to the health sciences.
The University Community Partnerships Office serves as UCSF's institutional infrastructure for community partnerships. The office supports the diverse ecosystem of organically developed, grass-roots community partnerships that exist at UCSF by facilitating community partnerships, incubating new initiatives, and helping to overcome institutional barriers impeding civic engagement. It also serves as a clearinghouse, capacity builder and navigator. The leaders of this webinar represent faculty, staff, community partners, and learners affiliated with this office.
Participants will be able to:
- Describe examples of how they can engage graduate professional learners in service learning.
