Service Learning: Best Practices for Implementation and Assessment

Service learning has long been an innovative way to “bridge the gap” between the classroom and the outside world; however community organizations are often abandoned once the semester ends. This session will define and explore meaningful service learning opportunities and sustainable programs. Resources will include assessment models and sample syllabi.

Designing Curriculum for a Service Learning Course

Service learning provides a rich educational experience that pairs meaningful service with instruction to foster students’ community involvement and engagement. Participants will learn how to develop a service learning course with realistic, measurable learning outcomes and will create a learning outcome for a potential course at their own institution.
