Principles and Practices of Taking Action

Purpose: ECE certified instructors for EDLR1162 and HRTS1007 will engage in a day-long professional development (PD) opportunity that will provide exposure to service-learning, community partnerships, and civic engagement through a human rights lens. Participation in this PD opportunity will count toward the ECE requirement for PD for its instructors.

Throughout the day ECE instructors will be encouraged to think critically about how and why we take action, as well as the consider implications for the multiple stakeholders involved when action is taken. For the purpose of this workshop, “taking action” will most often be defined by engaging in direct service.


Objectives: Participants of this professional development will

  • Compare perspectives of various stakeholders engaged in service-learning opportunities

  • Demonstrate understanding of the tenants of service-learning as pedagogical approaches to instruction, and its relationship to human rights education

  • Apply service-learning framework to the context of their own high schools and community

  • Design service-learning opportunity that is reflective of service-learning framework, as well as human rights education principles and practices.


Anticipated schedule of Events:


9:30am Arrival and check-in at Dodd Center


10:00am Theoretical overview of service-learning frameworks

Dr. Kari Taylor and Danielle Derosa will review the tenants of service- learning approaches and engage ECE instructors in a conversation around service-learning as a pedagogical approach.

10:45am Service-Learning panel

Comprised of a UConn faculty currently teaching a service-learning course, a student who has taken a service-learning course, and a community partner, this panel will explore the multiple perspectives of engaging in service-learning partnerships.


12:00pm Lunch (provided)


12:45pm Service learning framework activity

As part of a guided activity, ECE instructors will be asked to examine tenants of service-learning as a pedagogical approach to learning and begin to think about opportunities and challenges that exist for service-learning opportunities in their schools. This session will also allow the opportunity for ECE instructors to break into small groups or pairs to work on creating and/or refining service-learning opportunities that their students could engage in as a way to take action.
