Community-Based Learning Gets Official Designation

credit:

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater campus will have a new letter designation coming in the fall about what courses are community-based and what they entail.

According to Kate Ksobiech, an associate professor in the communication department, "Community-based learning is where you incorporate into a class significant outreach work that will involve community partners."

Utilizing the community-based learning practices, professors partner with an organization, business or program in the community and have students in that designated class volunteer time outside (and sometimes inside) of the classroom to work with that specific program.

While it may seem like a lot of extra work on top of what the classes already demand, the benefits of taking a community-based learning course can help students find a job, build their resumes and enhance their learning skills.
