- Faculty will communicate with students in advance about how a transition to online instruction would impact the service-learning project, if applicable.
- Examples of indirect, research-based, or advocacy-based service-learning include.
- Research, assessment, or evaluation in collaboration with a partner organization.
- Deliverables created for a partner organization, such as digital media or social media content, print materials, logos, or handbooks.
- Creating virtual educational materials such as webinars or streaming a presentation or performance.
- Examples of direct service offered in a virtual or contactless setting include.
- Tutoring or mentoring through video conferencing platforms.
- Delivering meals or conducting well checks over the phone.
- Hosting or assisting with a virtual event for a community organization.
