Community-Based Learning Committee (GF)

This committee ensures ongoing development, collaboration, communication, and support for pedagogy of community-based learning by:

  • investigating and publicizing ways in which the Bonner Center can support and facilitate the pedagogy of community-based learning,
  • pursing faculty development opportunities,
  • identifying pedagogical innovation and community-based scholarship, 
  • interacting with peer institutions to share best practices, and
  • sharing models for ways to assess learning in CBL courses.

This committee meets once per semester with representatives from each of the groups involving college students that support K-12 education in Oberlin.
