Learn to design your course or assignment around community service.
Service-learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.
(From Fayetteville State University)
Service-learning . . .
- attempts to create positive change in both service recipients (community partners) and providers (students).
- adapts to individual disciplines, courses, and assignments.
- requires students to reflect on how their service contributes to their understanding of course content.
- contributes to Xavier's social justice mission.
- is deeply needed in post-Katrina New Orleans.
Learn more about service learning at Xavier on the official service learning page from CSLS. More pedagogical resources related to service learning are available on the CAT+FD wiki.
