In collaboration with the Crown Faculty Center and the Associate Dean of the Faculty, the Collaborative for Community Engagement (CCE) supports faculty who develop and teach Community-Based Learning (CBL) courses.
Currently the CCE offers
- CBL Tagging in the Course Catalogue
- Faculty Development Workshops
- Individual consultations
CBL Tagging Process
Faculty members using a Community-Based Learning/Research pedagogy may apply to have their course tagged in the course catalogue. Interested faculty must submit a syllabus and short response to how their course meets each of the five criteria for CBL at Colorado College as shown below. This is a rolling application process, but a list of tagged courses must be sent to the Registrar by early March for the following school year. Please contact Dr. David Harker at David.Harker@ColoradoCollege.edu with questions and concerns, or to apply.
Faculty Development Workshops
In collaboration with the Crown Faculty Center, CCE provides ongoing opportunities for Colorado College faculty to develop and hone their community-based learning pedagogies through brownbags, roundtables, and workshops facilitated by outstanding local and nationwide faculty leaders. In addition to workshops, the CCE also offers regular strategy sharing sessions for faculty to discuss with their colleagues the challenges and benefits of this work, particularly in the context of Colorado College's unique block system. Funding may also occasionally available for travel to civic engagement-related conferences. Please check back in Block I for an emerging schedule of workshops.
The CCE is happy to assist faculty with individualized support for the development of a Community-Based Learning course. For a consultation, please e-mail David.Harker@ColoradoCollege.edu.
