Proposal Title

Undergraduate Research and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Proposal Abstract

With the new Residential College in the Arts and Humanities at Michigan State University a unique opportunity was created to integrate graduate and undergraduate education in the arts and humanities around the dual focal points of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and the Scholarship of Engagement. Currently, a CASTL Leadership Group of 10 graduate fellows from varied academic fields works with undergraduate students as mentors, tutors, and instructors in the areas of civic engagement programs, language proficiency programs, and creative workshops. For example, through a combination of integrated class work and engagement activities, community partners, faculty leaders, fellows and students are encouraged to reflect on the principles, methods, meaning, and ethics of engagement as well as the goals of their engagement project and the obstacles they have encountered. Also, they reflect on the presuppositions and assumptions to engagement, especially those relating to transcultural differences and similarities.
