Advancing Community Driven Global Service-Learning
June 29-30, 2017 SUNY Oswego Metro Center Syracuse, NY
Please join us for our 8th Global Service-Learning Institute! The Global Service-Learning Institute (GSLI) will build upon established institute strengths in global service-learning pedagogy and program development, while also integrating more explicit attention to best practices in community-driven global service-learning. Previous institutes have highlighted encouragement of institutional teams and the opportunity to workshop global service-learning coursework and programs during the institute, along with deep collaboration, dialogue with, and learning from like-minded peers. Given the success previous institutes, we will continue to provide participants with the opportunity to further develop their global service-learning programs - whether they are novice or advanced - in centrally located Syracuse, New York.
NOTE: The Institute is uniquely designed to be collaborative, open, and participatory. Past attendees have found the format and design offers opportunities for in-depth conversation, quality feedback, and network-building. In addition, we welcome questions, suggestions and comments throughout scheduled programming.

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.
