Dr. Robin McLachlan taught her first service-learning course, Environmental Communication, where she has engaged students in communication activities. Her project involved students collaborating with local or regional community partners to complete projects tailored to students’ personal learning goals and needs of their community partner. The focus of these projects was to produce a product that communicated how individuals interact with the environment and to inform about the environment in which we live. Various organizations that students’ chose to work with were 4-H Tidelands Nature Center, Keep Golden Isles Beautiful, Glynn Environmental Coalition, and Forward Brunswick. Communication about the environment and how to improve the quality of it was a major takeaway for students.
