Creating a quality Service-Learning experience

By incorporating service-learning into a course, it does not change what is taught - it changes how it is taught.

Studies within service-learning indicate there are four traits to a quality experience:

  • Commitment to the community in which the service is being performed is paramount
  • Service-learning should include academic rigor
  • Meaningful reflection moves the experience of service-learning from a service opportunity to a learning and service educational opportunity
  • Students will begin to learn from this experience an understanding of civic responsibility
