Using Spanish Skills to Gain Community Insight

Professor Giovanna Steyaert, from the Modern Languages Department, was awarded the Ursinus College Teaching and Learning Initiative Grant for Pedagogical Innovation and Experimentation. The name of her project is: Integrating service learning to the Spanish curriculum. Through this initiative, students will make real-life connections outside the classroom setting, using their Spanish skills to gain a deeper understanding of the lifestyle, customs, and diversity within the local Hispanic community.
