Colloquium of High-Impact Community Engagement Practices

Creating spaces where faculty, community engagement professionals, graduate students, and community partners can learn, grow, and interact..

The Colloquium on High-Impact Community Engaged Practice is made up of two of Indiana Campus Compact’s most successful programs, the Service-Learning Institute and the Critically Engaged Teaching Seminar. All aspects of the Colloquium are developed and scaffolded to increase your knowledge and further enhance your engaged scholarship. We work to create spaces where faculty, community engagement professionals, graduate students, and community partners can learn, grow, and interact with one another while building a network of engaged scholars.

We at Indiana Campus Compact are committed to supporting engaged faculty and practitioners through every stage of their professional development process. During this time of continued physical disconnection, we are continually working with our partners across the state and country to ensure that Colloquium participants, at all levels, receive a quality experience.

Service-Learning Institute

What is the Service-Learning Institute?

The traditional in-person Service-Learning Institute, better known as SLI (“slee”) is a 3-day learning community style institute designed to assist you in transforming your traditional course into a high-impact community-based experience. The Service-Learning Institute focuses on the basics of curricular course design, as well as introduce participants to the concept of high-impact community engaged practices as conceptualized by Hoy and Johnson (2013).

Begin by examining your learning objectives, and end with focusing on how to work with your community partners to co-create high-impact experience for your students. The Institute includes plenary workshops, concurrent learning sessions, and small group learning communities, allowing faculty, graduate students, and community partners the opportunity to focus on their individual learning needs.

Institute Objectives:

  • To increase the number of high-quality, high-impact community engagement experiences courses
  • To share promising practices and generate new ideas
  • To enhance reflection, assessment, and partnerships in curricular and co-curricular high-impact community engagement experiences
  • To build a network of engaged scholars and practitioners

Institute Topics:

  • Introduction to high-impact community engagement practices (Hoy & Johnson, 2013)
  • Designing both curricular and co-curricular high-impact community engagement experiences
  • Creating and assessing learning outcomes connected to community-based experiences
  • Developing meaningful reflection activities
  • Developing authentic community-campus partnerships
  • Constructing service-learning course documents including course syllabus, memorandum of understanding, and learning contract
  • Preparing students for community-based learning
  • Introduction to critical service learning (Mitchell, 2008)

Who should attend?

The Service-Learning Institute has been designed for:

  • Faculty interested in designing new service-learning (or high-impact community engaged) courses or gaining strategies to improve the quality of their existing community engaged-course.
  • Graduate students who are interested in incorporating community engaged pedagogy into their future work. 
  • Community partners who are working with faculty or graduate students in the planning and implementation of a community-based learning experience.

Critically Engaged Teaching Seminar

What is the Critically Engaged Teaching Seminar?

The Critically-Engaged Teaching Seminar will focus on the intersection between community engagement, high-impact practices, and critical theory and practice. Sessions will cover the work of scholars such as Tania Mitchell (2008, 2015, 2017, 2020), Adrian Hoy and Matthew Johnson (2013), and Margaret Post, Elaine Ward, Nicholas Longo, and John Saltmarsh (2016).

We encourage those who implement both curricular and co-curricular community engagement teaching and learning practices, and are now looking to further develop these experiences by applying a more critical lens in partnership with their community partner. Sessions will allow faculty, community engagement professions, institutional chief engagement officers, graduate students, and community partners to discuss topics of power and privilege, race, gender, and ethnic inequities, and community-university relationships in a space of open dialogue.

Institute Objectives:

  • To build the knowledge of and around critical community engagement
  • To share promising practices and generate new ideas in the area of critical community engagement and community-engaged research
  • To enhance reflection, assessment, and partnerships in critical community engagement and community-engaged research
  • To build a network of public scholars

Institute Topics:

  • Introduction to high-impact community engagement practices (Hoy & Johnson, 2013)
  • Exploration and discussion of critical community engagement and publicly scholars
  • Designing critical community engagement experiences
  • Nurturing authentic community-campus partnerships
  • Exploring models to support those who are implementing critical community engagement and community-engaged research
  • Exploring models to further a campus culture for community engagement

Who should attend?

The Critically-Engaged Teaching Seminar has been specifically designed for:

  • Faculty interested in incorporating critical community engagement, community-based research, or other high-impact community engaged practices into their existing community-engaged courses.
  • Community engagement professionals who specialize in providing campus-wide faculty development, work to build authentic community-campus partnerships and administer campus-wide community engagement efforts.
  • Graduate students who are familiar with critical theory and how it intersects with community engagement and are interested in what to further their future community-campus engagement and scholarly work.
