Critical CBTL Design Elements

What Community-Based Transformational Learning (CBTL) looks like can vary greatly depending on whether or not it's curricular or co-curricular, the level of engagement, the community partner and the skill level of the students. However, all CBTL experiences share several common elements including clearly articulated learning outcomes, community relationships, active learning strategies and exercises and reflection-based assignments. Additionally, curricular CBTL is most often presented within a syllabus. These elements and their common characteristics are described more fully in the links below.
