UTSC faculty are invited to an informal drop-in Zoom session with ILE Coordinators and the Special Advisor on Experiential Education to chat about possible curricular experiential learning opportunities with community partners.
Corinne Beauquis, Special Advisor on Experiential Education, with Saddaf Syed and Julie Witt, Integrated Learning Experience Coordinators, will be available to answer your questions, brainstorm possible solutions, and share with you best practices and recent successes building sustainable and effective community partnerships for exciting remote and on-site academic ILEs.
Yes, it’s true – experiential learning can still occur remotely, even with community partners! The Integrated Learning Experience (ILE) Coordinators help faculty to find and work with partner organizations that can provide relevant, curricular-aligned experiences for our students. Please drop-in to find out how or share your ideas with us!
For Zoom details, and for more information, please email Saddaf Syed and Julie firstname.lastname@example.org
