Community Engagement/Experiential Learning Report

This assignment is to fulfill the requirements for the Community

Engagement/Experiential Learning Activities. As stated in the

syllabus, points are given for participation in approved community

engagement activities and preparing a journal of those activities.

Community engagement activities include those organized or

approved, as well as other such activities the instructor feels fits

the spirit of the ISU definition of community engagement and is

appropriate to the content of this course. Experiential learning

activities allow the student to apply the principles learned in the

course in a practical way, so the students may “get their hands

dirty” with an appropriate learning activity to help students gain a

deeper understanding of the ideas and concepts presented in the

course.  If unsure of what is appropriate, please contact the

instructor for clarification. Some examples of things former

students have done are listed at the end.

You may begin this assignment at any time during the term, but it

must be completed by the deadline. You should submit your

journal as a Word document attachment to the Discussion Board

for this assignment. Please read and comment on the postings of

your peers for this assignment. You may learn of many exciting

activities that you can do in the future. If you are doing community

engagement for this assignment, you should spend at least ten

hours performing your activity. This can be done in one day, or

broken up into several segments. Your journal is to provide a clear

picture of: 1. What you did for this activity, 2. Who, or what

organization did you perform this activity for, 3. How your activity

related to the emphasis of this course, specifically ethics and social

responsibility as they relate to environmental issues, if possible,

and 4. Your feelings about doing this activity and whether it causes

you to want to continue to perform such activities in the future.
