About the Program
The Learning Fellows Program is a new program at Dartmouth that matches talented undergraduate students with faculty working to boost student engagement in their classrooms. The Social Impact Learning Fellows help faculty design and implement courses that integrate a Social Impact Practicum into the class.
Social Impact Learning Fellows work closely with the Center for Social Impact to coordinate outreach for a specific course, around a particular theme or social issue, or with a specific community organization. In addition to earning $12/hr for their time, they receive training in facilitating pedagogical discussion alongside other Learning Fellows. Social Impact Learning Fellows also gain specialized experience in:
- Best practices in community-engaged learning
- Connecting Social Impact Practicum (SIP) projects with measurable community impact
- Facilitating effective communication and collaboration across campus-community stakeholders
- Delivering high-impact solutions to societal challenges
- Facilitating critical reflection for faculty and students engaged with community organizations
