The Florida Campus Compact Certified Scholars Program 2009-2010
In an effort to develop a corps of regional presenters and consultants who can promote best practices in service-learning and community engagement across the state of Florida, Florida Campus Compact (FL|CC) invites faculty and staff members who are well acquainted with service-learning to apply for the 2009-2010 Certified Scholars Program. This structured certification program produces effective presenters and consultants to support FL|CC campuses and create inter-campus collaboration through trainings and workshops.
The FL|CC Certified Scholar Program consists of three sequential phases:
1. Learning, Creation, and Preparation ("Train the Trainer") - Participants will take part in workshops hosted by FL|CC highlighting various strategies for successfully hosting trainings/workshops/presentations. All participants will create a peer reviewed training/workshop/presentation on a selected service-learning subject. Throughout the program, participants will have the opportunity to submit outlines, research, and any other corresponding work to experts in the field for suggestions and feedback.
2. Experience and Certification - All participants will be expected to offer their preapproved training/workshop/presentation to at least one member campus in the state during the program year. After revisions and peer evaluation, each scholar will be certified as an official service-learning consultant.
3. Service and Professional Development - After completion of this program, all Certified Scholars will be given the opportunity to maintain a close relationship with FL|CC, giving trainings/workshops/presentations, providing consultative services, and representing FL|CC in various capacities in order to expand the impact of our work statewide.
This program provides a professional development opportunity for participants by advancing the field, expanding the reach of service-learning and FL|CC, thereby benefitting students, faculty, and communities in Florida and beyond. Participants will receive a $500 stipend for each semester of participation and may apply for support for related travel and other costs.
