Building: Sept 11 Dr Ruth Kassel--Community within Community: Dr. Kassel has been working in faculty development related work since 2007. Her areas of specialization include experiential learning, community engaged teaching and learning (CETL), effective use of reflection, and university/community partnership building. In her three years at ACE she has worked with numerous faculty and has developed academically-focused programs including the Certificate in Community Development, local/international internship programs, and community-engaged undergraduate research. Ruth has a PhD in Spanish linguistics and her research interests include language contact, community development in higher education, and community-engaged scholarship.

Intended to be experienced as teams, we are hoping the LAB Sessions will offer our partner organizations insight into themes and tools for each of our institutions and program to share, build, and grow. Much like our past engagement summits, each of the LAB Sessions will feature an outstanding professional from around the Jewish field. All participants will have to opportunity to learn as groups of 2-5 from sponsoring organization and will have time to work within the session as their team and with the wider group. Ten sessions will be offered, each team does not need to be the same for each session. Example: a topic may pertain to a membership committee but not to a finance committee, then those committee members should participate. The only exception being the preference to ensure there is one consistent staffer or layperson who attends all 10 sessions to ensure consistency across the course.  All sessions will be 7-9 pm on Zoom. Cost is $180 to the sponsoring partner organization regardless of number of sessions attended or people from each org participating.
