Description/Abstract

Conducting community-based research while participating in international service learning seems like the perfect match. Executing research in a responsible and critical manner, however, can prove to be challenging. In this interactive presentation, we will demonstrate how FSU is tackling this challenge through its Global Scholars program. We will outline effective strategies used over the past 5 years, as well as new ones we are just beginning to implement. These new strategies hope to continue the process of reflecting, acting, and dialoguing, i.e. praxis, that students engaged in while overseas and apply it to conducting community-based research upon returning home.
