Autumn 2013 Service-Learning Courses

By Carlson Center

studentsService-Learning courses com­bine aca­d­e­mic learn­ing in the class­room and ser­vice with the com­mu­nity in a vari­ety of ways. The list of courses offer­ing Service-Learning dur­ing Autumn 2013 is grow­ing… take a look at the courses already posted.

The Carl­son Cen­ter is your resource for select­ing a service-learning posi­tion, but you can also talk to the instruc­tor for your course to learn more about the role of service-learning in a spe­cific class.

To learn more about service-learning in gen­eral, check out the Stu­dents sec­tion of this web­site or con­tact us at 206.543.4282 or serve@uw.edu if you have addi­tional ques­tions.

Brows­ing Service-Learning Posi­tions
• Dur­ing the first few days of the quar­ter (some­times a few days before the quar­ter starts), stu­dents reg­is­tered for one of the courses below can read about service-learning posi­tion options online.  BEGIN BROWSING posi­tions for your course.

• Carl­son Cen­ter staff will make a pre­sen­ta­tion in each class about service-learning logis­tics dur­ing the first days of the quar­ter.  This is a great time to ask ques­tions about service-learning in gen­eral or inquire about spe­cific positions/organizations.

Tips for Brows­ing and Service-Learning Logis­tics
• Stu­dents engaged in service-learning will spend 20 to 40 hours (3 to 5 hours per week) work­ing with one com­mu­nity part­ner orga­ni­za­tion over the course of the quarter.    

• When brows­ing service-learning posi­tion options, choose options that are inter­est­ing to you and fit with your course/work sched­ule.  Learn about each orga­ni­za­tion by check­ing out the organization’s website. 

• As you con­sider your service-learning options, remem­ber to fac­tor in travel time to orga­ni­za­tions (and how that might impact your avail­abil­ity for the shift they have listed).  For tips on travel by bus, we rec­om­mend tak­ing a look at www.metro.kingcounty.gov or Google Maps.

• Please do not call the service-learning orga­ni­za­tion until you have reg­is­tered for a posi­tion. Orga­ni­za­tions pre­fer to have the Carl­son Cen­ter answer any ques­tions about spe­cific posi­tions dur­ing the brows­ing period; this helps part­ner orga­ni­za­tions man­age the flow of their work—and usu­ally gets you an answer to your ques­tion in a more timely man­ner.  
 

Reg­is­ter­ing for a Service-Learning Posi­tion
• ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR SERVICE-LEARNING POSITIONS Your service-learning reg­is­tra­tion open­ing date and time is dif­fer­ent depend­ing on what course you are reg­is­tered for, reg­is­tra­tion dates and times will be added to the web site in mid-September, 2013. 

• Service-learning posi­tions are first come, first served. If a posi­tion is filled, you must choose another open position.

• Attend a Pre-Service Work­shop through the Carl­son Cen­ter to set the stage for a great service-learning expe­ri­ence (this is optional, but rec­om­mended).  These work­shops are held dur­ing the sec­ond week of the quar­ter, the sched­ule for these work­shops will be updated on our web site in mid-September. 

• After reg­is­tra­tion, you can log back in to the service-learning data­base at any time to find details about your service-learning posi­tion. 

*Are you already an active vol­un­teer in an orga­ni­za­tion whose mis­sion and work meets the learn­ing goals and objec­tives for your course?
 Com­plete the Service-Learning Self Place­ment form and ask your pro­fes­sor to email it to serve@uw.edu with their approval.

Below is a list of classes that we antic­i­pate will have a service-learning com­po­nent in Autumn, 2013. As addi­tional courses are con­firmed, they will be added to this list.
