We foster a CEL Community of Practice through regular workshops, roundtables, informal peer-led gatherings and co-presented events throughout the academic year.
Our faculty events cover a variety of topics and bring together instructors who teach, or are interested in teaching, community-engaged learning courses.
In addition to the events listed below under How the Program Works, one-off events may arise throughout the year. To stay up to date on upcoming events, please register for our faculty newsletter.

How The Program Works
CEL Community of Practice (CoP) Gatherings
These peer-led community of practice gatherings offers CEL instructors a recurring conversation space to meet each other, share best practices, troubleshoot, discuss relevant literature and collaborate on CEL/CER teaching-related issues. Each gathering will be co-hosted and facilitated by a different faculty member, who will present a challenge, case study, experience, article or other resource to spark discussion.
CEL Faculty Roundtables
CEL Faculty Roundtables offer an opportunity for experienced CEL practitioners to discuss selected themes or issues in depth with experts from across the University. Our roundtables take place online. Each speaker has 10 minutes to share their experiences and questions on the topic at hand. Time is also reserved for attendees to interact and further share their experiences.
Community-Engaged Learning Workshops
CEL Course Development Workshop
The CEL course development workshop is aimed at instructors new to CEL. This workshop covers the fundamentals of CEL pedagogy and practice while providing practical strategies for designing and running a CEL course. Participants are invited to bring a syllabus that they would like to re-design or the idea for a course they would like to create. All faculty and instructors are invited to attend.
