SOURCE Online Modules

In partnership with various faculty, staff, students, and community leaders, SOURCE has developed a series of three online modules to prepare students, faculty, staff and other Hopkins representatives for accountable, responsible, authentic, collaborative academic-community partnerships. We urge all who are intending to become involved in community activities (volunteerism, field placements, practicum, internships, scholarly projects, etc.)in Baltimore (or elsewhere) to prepare themselves for their work by viewing the modules.

These online modules are required for many of the service-learning courses supported by SOURCE. We recommend the modules be watched in the order outlined below, however each module can be viewed independent of the others.

Funding for the SOURCE Online Modules series was provided by the office of JHU President Ronald J. Daniels. We also wish to acknowledge everyone who contributed to the development of the modules.
