Community based learning (CBL) is a pedagogical approach that intentionally links what is being taught in the classroom to the surrounding communities. CBL is grounded in mutual respect and the belief that all communities have educational assets and resources that can enhance learning experiences for students. While the specific form that CBL takes varies across courses, it is characterized by: sustained, extensive work outside the classroom; meaningful student reflection; significant integration of community perspective; and alignment between community and classroom learning.
