Education in Action
Students and faculty expand their role as civically engaged scholars through community-based projects.
What is the Education in Action (EIA) Program?
What is the role of an Education in Action (EIA) Facilitator?
The role of an EIA facilitator is complex and demanding and may include:
- Development of the course syllabus and the community based learning/research project
- Leading trainings and workshops to prepare students to engage with off-campus community members, led reflection discussions, assisted students in the course with research projects
- Providing faculty with a student perspective on the course readings and writing prompts for writing assignments or final exams
- Assisting with logistics such as arranging speaker panels and organizing events
EIA Facilitators are expected to develop reciprocal relationships with faculty, students, community partners, and CCBL staff. Many student facilitators have recognized their own voice and agency within their education while in the EIA program. Students often develop leadership and professional skills that influence and contribute to their work after college.
