Institute for Academic Service-Learning June 14, 2018 St. John's University, Queens Campus
St. John's will be co-hosting with New York Campus Compact an Institute on Academic Service-Learning on June 14, 2018 facilitated by Dr. Edward Zlotkowski, former Professor of English at Bentley University and academic service-learning pioneer. The program is designed for faculty who want to explore and/or deepen their understanding and practice of academic service-learning. Dr. Zlotkowski founded the Bentley Service-Learning Center in 1990. The Center provides university wide support for all undergraduate departments and has aided a quarter of the Bentley full-time faculty and several thousand students in participating in service-learning projects. He has led service-learning workshops for international, national and regional organizations as well as for several hundred individual campuses and writes and speaks extensively on a wide range of service-learning and engagement-related topics.
The Institute is open to all full time and part time faculty and administrators who teach. Your attendance at this program will result in certification in academic service-learning. Learn more here: https://www.regonline.com/SJU-InstituteSL

What is the difference between a roundtable and a symposium? The primary difference between a roundtable event and a symposium is the level of structure. Roundtables are less formal and provide a venue where every participant is expected to contribute to the discussion.
Symposia involve one or more formal presentations (in the form of research papers, essay, or white papers) followed by active participation on the part of the audience. Symposia are often organized to explicitly include opposing perspectives.
