CBL Workshops - In-Class Workshops

CEAL workshops are co-designed with faculty in order to support student learning outcomes in an engaging and interactive way. While we have a selection of workshops from which you can choose, they can also serve as the foundation for designing workshops specific to your needs. During your consultation with a CEAL staff member you will:

  • Identify how the workshop(s) will be integrated into your course 
  • Provide feedback on ways to design the course to fit the needs of your students
  • Establish a plan and timeline for implementation

We offer workshops in the following areas: (drop down buttons)

Reflective Practice

Reflective practice is a core component of CBL. Reflection allows students to connect their experiences in the community with their learning. These sessions focus on creating opportunities for students to practice critical reflection across areas of personal growth, academic enhancement, and civic learning.

These professional development sessions focus on helping students to identify the skills they are practicing that they can apply in their future internships and career opportunities based on their academic disciplines.
