Event Overview
This day-long workshop will focus on the philosophical and practical underpinnings of digital service-learning.  As an extension of service-learning, digital service-learning explores how classrooms can connect with the global community to perform service-learning projects that enhance the learning, digital skills, and relationships between the students and the partnering communities.  The workshop will address how digital service-learning fits into the realm of service-learning while also pressing some of the borders of how service-learning is currently understood.  Participants will hear from faculty who have run digital service-learning projects and work through activities to help them develop a plan for their own digital service-learning project.  

Session Outcomes:
Articulate what digital service-learning is in more comprehensive and global manner.
  - Critically explain the value, challenges, and opportunities that digital service-learning offers.
  - Draw upon numerous examples and ideas of digital service-learning to adapt for their institutes and classrooms.
