Camp Kendall-Vocational Reflection, Improving CBL St. Peter Room, Interpretive Center

Vocational Reflection: Gustavus and You (St Peter Room)
Encouraging vocational reflection is one of the priorities in the Gustavus Acts strategic plan. But what does that mean for you and your teaching? This workshop, facilitated by Marcia Bunge (Religion) and Florence Amamoto (English) explores how Gustavus' Lutheran and liberal arts heritage supports the exploration of values and inclusiveness. Participants will hear about the experiences of non-Christian faculty, learn about current efforts to improve advising, and discuss successful strategies used in classes to support students reflecting on values and life purpose. Participants will also be given some time to reflect on their own sense of purpose for their teaching and life at Gustavus and to discuss how and why they might incorporate reflection time/reflective exercises into their courses. Questions? Contact Florence Amamoto (amamoto@gustavus.edu).
Workshop participants will receive a $150 stipend and meals provided. Maximum of 12 participants. Please email expressions of interest to Cathy Blaukat (cblaukat@gustavus.edu).

Using Case Studies and Partner Perspectives to Launch or Improve CBL (Interpretive Center)
This one-day workshop, facilitated by Tonya Kjerland (Community Based Service and Learning) will use a case study approach to explore best practices for community-based learning. Community leaders from the civic, education, and non-profit sectors will share their experiences as collaborators in community-based learning and what works best from their perspectives. Gustavus faculty will share models for community based learning in a variety of disciplines, how their practices have changed over time, and what they recommend for faculty just getting started or improving CBL classes. Participants will learn about the new Gustavus Civic Action Plan, become familiar with Gustavus Engage, and how to use work time to develop or improve their CBL courses. Emphases will include student learning outcomes, models for CBL, and community partners. Questions? Contact Tonya Kjerland (tkjerlan@gustavus.edu).
Workshop participants will receive a $150 stipend and meals provided. Maximum of 18 participants. Please email expressions of interest to Cathy Blaukat (cblaukat@gustavus.edu)
