Cultural Heritage Preservation: Service-Learning with Unmanned Technologies in the Balkans

The Balkans’ unique and diverse cultural heritage provides an ideal setting for student service- learning in political, cultural, and sociological studies. This session includes perspectives from three different organizations – one located in the U.S. and two located in the Republic of Kosovo. Participants will assess pedagogy for effective service-learning that addresses real-world needs and how to identify partners, necessary preparations, and essential logistics. Presenters will discuss ways to identify and enhance underserved university programs, engage faculty and connect with students, and bridge the divide between students in disciplines of technical and social sciences.
