The 5th ALA Forum on Education was a huge success. We were successful in creating an interactive event for a large group of people. Rae-Anne Montague and Clara Chu provided a great foundation for the attendees about Service Learning and the role/s of those performing the service/learning and the critical their of reflection as part of the learning and service process.
The Researchpalooza was timed perfectly and the presentors provided a wide variety of service learning projects ranging from services to the elderly through service learning in prisons. It was a fascinating range of projects and ideas.
The group discussions were very powerful and participants were engaged. What i love about the event is the mix of students, professionals, and faculty all participating on a level playing field. I’ll post more later : )
