In this course we will introduce the concept of community, including factors of locality, membership, unity/cohesion, authority, scope and boundaries. Learners will explore the core principles and building blocks of community engagement and development, as well as barriers to participation, and analyze their own role as community member. Learners are provided with guidelines, leads, and a tracking document for 40 hours of required community engagement, and will review the benefits and rationale of volunteerism. Learners are introduced to the foundational principles of reflective journaling, with reference with Kolb's model of experiential learning.
