Teaching Democracy: Connecting Theory to Service and Experiences
Friday, November 7, 2014: 4:00 PM-4:50 PM
Governorís Square 14 (Sheraton)
University of Nebraska-Kearney faculty and students discuss the integration of experiential and service-learning projects into two courses, Democracy as a Political Idea and Nebraska Environmental Policy. We demonstrate that participation in local community projects positively promotes student engagement, learning, and a greater understanding of the workings of democracy.
