Designing Service Learning Courses

Service Learning (SL) courses assist faculty in building connections between course content and practical, real world application. Such courses can offer faculty an opportunity to establish partnerships within the community, conduct meaningful research, collaborate with community and campus leaders, and create significant teaching and learning opportunities for students. Additionally, designing service learning courses and creating SL research projects can create opportunities for outside funding and assist in developing grant-writing skills.

Reflection Assessment

All students enrolled in a service learning course must participate in a reflection assessment, which allows students to connect learning in the classroom and their work with community partners. Meaningful reflection can be conducted in a group setting, in the classroom, at the community organization, or individually through course assignments.

The Service Learning Self Assessment form is for students to fill out at the end of the semester. This form is for faculty/service learning rep to administer.
