CUPS Service-Learning Teaching Assistants (SLTAs) provide approximately 5 hours per week of assistance to faculty teaching SL classes. In addition to learning modules tailored specifically to the contexts in which they are working, SLTAs receive training and ongoing professional development in the following areas:
- SL pedagogy & best practices
- Cross-cultural competency and effective communication
- Critical reflection
- Rubrics & assessment of reflection
- Project management tools
- Identifying community needs and fostering social change
- Reciprocity building successful partnerships
Most faculty use SLTAs to facilitate, design and/or grade critical reflection; introduce the concept of SL and the SL project(s); manage logistics and communication around the SL project(s); and/or work with community partners.
