Strengthening Community-Engaged Learning and Teaching at SFU

November 2021 | An informal group of people engaged in Community-Engaged Learning and Teaching (CELT) met monthly from May to September 2020 as part of the COVID-19 Community Resilience Network. Led by Gretchen Ferguson, Associate Director with SFU's Office of Community Engagement and Paola Ardiles Gamboa, Faculty Teaching Fellow and Lecturer (Health Sciences) and 2022 recipient of the Warren Gill Award for Community Impact, a small team undertook a research project in Summer 2020 with the support of a graduate student and a recent alumnus. The goal was to identify benefits and challenges/gaps related to CELT from the perspective of faculty, staff and students, and to frame ideas and considerations for strengthening CELT at SFU.
