Instructors and program administrators planning any course-based activities that will expose IUPUI students to children (any person under the age of 18) may be impacted by IU’s new policy regarding “Programs Involving Children”. Teaching and learning that involves minors both create meaningful learning opportunities; at the same time, these situations also expose instructors, students and the university to liability and risk. To navigate this new terrain, IUPUI faculty and staff will need a working knowledge and understanding of how to safe guard children as well as our university community. This informative and interactive workshop provides instructors a basic understanding of the new policy vis-à-vis service learning courses and outlines relevant definitions, procedures, and effective strategies instructors can use to make informed decisions about integrating child-focused projects into their courses and programs. The Center for Service and Learning highly encourages any faculty or staff who partner with community organizations that serve children to attend this workshop.
Outcomes: Participants will leave this workshop with the information and tools needed to comply with this new policy. This session will include significant time for troubleshooting, so come armed with questions related to your specific context.
