Quest III Course Development Workshops: January Interim

Creative Community Experience Assignments Imagined

As Quest III students work with alumni mentors and community partners, on or off campus, instructors will provide opportunities for those students to contextualize their experiential learning in course content. The graded assignments related to the community experience could take a variety of forms as students make sense of their experiences, for example:

  • oral history audio collections
  • multimedia presentations (e.g. photography accompanied by music or spoken word)
  • policy or value speeches
  • papers in which a claim is supported by evidence and reasoning and the Community Experience is one piece of evidence
  • structured blogs or journals in which students respond to prompts
  • non-fiction stories or poetry
