What is the Lake Superior Service-Learning Regional Conference?

This regional conference was held for the first time in April of 2010. Intended
to be held bi-annually, the LSSL Conference provides the
opportunity to learn from nationally recognized service-learning leaders,
network with other educators and service-learning professionals across
the region, and investigate the research and best practices supporting
service-learning. In addition, attendees will acquire hands-on skills to
apply and integrate service-learning as an evidence-based teaching strategy.

2012 theme and focus

The theme of this year's conference is Creating Sustainable Partnerships through Service-Learning. Sessions will focus on:

  1. The Community: (e.g. win-win partnerships; impact; sustaining programs when facing economic barriers; community-based research)
  2. The Classroom: (e.g. from theory to practice; research; student outcomes; using The Standards for Quality Practice)
  3. The Institution: (e.g. engaged departments; overcoming barriers at the institutional level; matching missions of institutions and agencies)
