Want is Community-based Learning?
We define community-based learning as an intentional pedagogical strategy to integrate student learning in academic courses with community engagement. This work is characterized by reciprocal and mutually beneficial partnerships between instructors, students, and community partners. Critical reflection is also an essential component to enhance students’ learning of course content, understanding of the community, and sense of civic agency.
