How can we help students strengthen the connection between their liberal arts education and the real world? Come take part in a discussion of service-based learning as one possible answer to this question. Projects from several Boston University English and Humanities courses that have enhanced students’ learning through service will be discussed. Gather ideas for a future service project in one of your courses, and share your thoughts about how your project could benefit the curriculum. Together we will brainstorm strategies for building partnerships with local organizations and developing tools for assessment. Sheila Cordner, CGS
