Event Description

Providing students with opportunities to apply theoretical concepts to real-world, community-identified issues is one of the key objectives of the Land, Food and Community (LFC) series in the Faculty of Land and Food Systems. Across the LFC series, students from all degree specializations within the faculty work in interdisciplinary groups with community partners to collaboratively address complex food system challenges. In this session, we will describe how we integrate flexible approaches to support student learning in a community setting. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from a panel of community partners, students, teaching assistants and instructors as they reflect on the benefits and challenges of being involved in the LFC series. This event is part of a series called Teaching Innovation in Practice (TIP): Tipping Points.

This event will be also be live streamed. The live stream can be found here: Tipping Points: Integrating Community-Identified Issues with Student Learning using Flexible Approaches
