CRLT in the News

  • CRLT students actively learn how to plan, implement and evaluate both simple and complex community projects.
  • We believe in giving students the opportunity to test their action skills, be immersed in ethical decisions and experience the consequences, first hand, of their behavior.

CRLT Students lead Sustainable Happiness Workshop for Faculty and Staff pedagogical development

Faculty and staff members in attendance from the Peace Studies Community of Practice were so impressed, they asked the students to adapt the workshop for Faculty development.  The result was a first-ever student-led workshop during Dawson’s Faculty Ped Day Program.
