CESL 3301 Community Engaged Scholarship and Learning Internship I

Students enrolled in this course will participate in a semester of in-depth faculty- facilitated, community-engaged scholarship that provides a rich and relevant context for exploration of culturally relevant topics through experiential learning, community engagement, and effective communication. Using a problem based learning approach, students will develop critical thinking and communication skills through active, experiential learning, and through oral and written presentations and/or disciplinary relevant communication, etc., and in-depth dialogue with other classmates, faculty, and community members (broadly-defined). By embedding students in the broader community vis-a-vis project-based scholarship and learning, this course also helps students develop both personal and social responsibility that further promotes a deep understanding of the research or scholarly topic.
