Through a mix of presentation, discussion, and interactive activities, participants will gain a deeper understanding of community-based learning and how it can foster meaningful education that is relevant, engaging, and impactful. We will also discuss the role of educators, learners, and community members in creating and sustaining community-based learning initiatives.
Some of the specific topics we will cover in this session include:
- What is community-based learning and why is it important?
- Examples of successful community-based learning initiatives in different contexts (e.g., schools, universities, community organizations, etc.)
- The benefits and challenges of community-based learning for educators, learners, and community members
- Strategies for effective collaboration and partnership between educational institutions and local communities
- How to evaluate the impact of community-based learning initiatives and share best practices with others
By the end of this session, participants will have a better understanding of how community-based learning can transform education and help build stronger, more resilient communities. They will also have practical tools and strategies for implementing community-based learning in their own educational contexts.
