Faculty Service Learning Resources
CFA FACULTY CALL:
We are looking for CFA faculty to submit articles, syllabus and creative works that demonstrate an A-BSL approach to learning, teaching and community arts practice.
We welcome examples of your own creative work/research as well as examples from individual students and/or class projects. We will post them to the PLACE website and highlight them in the bi-monthly PLACE 2 Minute Newsletter. Our newsletter listserve is distributed on the CFA list as well as a student and community e-list. Highlighting your research, teaching and student A-BSL activity is a way for community partners and funders to learn about your specific interests.
UNM FACULTY CALL:
The PLACE Program invites faculty across UNM to submit articles and syllabus that demonstrate SL approaches to learning, teaching and community practice that can be adapted to arts-based SL. We want to promote integrated, interdisciplinary and collaborative approaches to SL research and project development. The PLACE Program advocates a “synthesis-based” approach to research (more details, link to NSF) and community service. We see no limits on the potential of A-BSL to inform and enrich any research areas that engage or depend upon community involvment.
To make submissions, use the guideline below and send an email to email@example.com with “faculty submission” in the subject area. We will post your submission to the website and periodically send an email prompt our listserves to check out new web submissions.
