CEL Research Seminars
Following the tradition of multi-institutional research established by the Elon Research Seminars on Teaching Democratic Thinking (2009-2011) and Critical Transitions: Writing and the Question of Transfer (2011-2013), Center for Engaged Learning (CEL) Research Seminars support multi-institutional research on focused engaged learning topics. The seminars invite applications from scholars at higher education institutions around the world for 24 to 36 participant spots, and accepted participants collaborate over two academic years, with three summer meetings. CEL Seminars have significant impacts on engaged learning scholarship related to the seminar topics.
