The Big Share - Interdisciplinary Session

The Big Share - Interdisciplinary Session
The Big Share has been created by the Center for Civic & Social Responsibility to provide KU service learning practitioners the opportunity to come together and compare service learning notes. This session will focus on the logistics and practice of interdisciplinary curricula. Provided structure and basic direction, participants will work together to design a sample service learning course. The resulting case studies will offer possibilities for future partnerships.
