Workshops for USM Service-Learning

Crossroads of Experience, Service and Academic Integrity |  October 23


When students cheat, they do not learn. To combat this, faculty are encouraged to design courses with unique experiences and assignments. Using experiential and service-learning strategies, faculty can create unique experiences for students that both deepen student learning and deter academic integrity violations.

The workshop will be held in the Center for Faculty Development, IC 319, from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm. Session led by Cindy Blackwell, Associate Director, Center for Faculty Development and Academic Integrity Officer; Lisa Stevens, Director, Center for Pathway Experiences; and Christy Arrazattee, Director, Center for Community Engagement. 

Helping Students Develop Resilient Approaches to Learning |  October 30


In an academic environment, student resistance often impedes learning and also can cause conflict within the classroom community. While resistance may initially appear as fear, anger, shame, blame, boredom, frustration, overwhelm, burnout, or lack of motivation, underneath any form of resistance is vital information about how to help individual learners and to develop a more compassionate classroom. By employing reflective processes for recognizing the wisdom behind resistance in both ourselves and our students, this workshop explores ways to facilitate more resilient approaches to learning.

The workshop will be held in the Center for Faculty Development, IC 319, from 10:00 - 11:15 am. Session led by Candice Salyers, Assistant Professor of Dance.
