Description

The University has institutionalized a campus-wide professional development program where disciplinary faculty redesign their courses. The professional development program curriculum is based on Self-Determination Theory, which suggests that personal motivation is directly related to perceptions of autonomy, competence, and relatedness within the classroom environment. Additionally, University Libraries is a campus partner with desires of infusing informed learning and information literacy concepts into as many course as possible, appropriately.

A faculty member from the College of Agriculture and a faculty member from the Libraries have redesigned a multicultural awareness course, with student competence, relatedness, and autonomy in mind while also providing opportunities for growth in information literacy and informed learning skills. Throughout the course, students design and immerse themselves in a culturally relevant service project. The presentation will discuss motivation for cultural competence within the context of the culturally immersive service learning experience. It will also highlight the embedded information literacy and informed learning activities. Course activities include online and face to face interactions with students, and well as redesigned rubrics and deliverables. Participants will learn the campus and community partnerships required to execute this unique course, including service agencies, campus disciplinary units, libraries, and student service organizations.
