CSL 350: Selected Topics in Community Service-Learning

In May 2018, the CSL 350 course, taught at the U of A, will prepare students theoretically and logistically for their CSL experience in Nicaragua.  A critical sociological approach will examine possibilities for solidarity and social justice learning. Intercultural learning theories and strategies will be explored. (3 credits)

CSL 360: Community Service-Learning Practicum

In June 2018, students will travel together to Nicaragua for three weeks (Esteli, Managua and surrounds) to live with host families, work on solidarity projects, learn from local community educators, and complete critical reflection activities for assessment.  Students will be accompanied by a U of A instructor and a CSL Partnership Coordinator. Students will complete a final integrative essay and/or present their project for their final assessment item. (3 credits) 

*NOTE: Students cannot participate in CSL 360 without doing CSL 350 immediately prior to departing Canada.
