Engaging Co-Educators

Facilitating the Co-Education Experience

As a co-educator in charge of supplementing and enhancing academic course material with civic experiences, it is important that the students perform duties that correspond as closely as possible with the academic knowledge they will gain throughout the semester. The more closely the connection between the service experience and the course material, the more meaningful the experience will be for students. Community partners and faculty will also benefit if the service and academic elements of a service-learning course are connected. In order for this to happen, it is ideal for university faculty and community partners to try and match course material with service experiences, and understanding the community issue area or areas addressed by partners is a great place to begin!
