Service-Learning in higher education

Many educators believe that service-learning can be a valuable practice … for other educators.

But they’re sometimes at a loss to understand how it can be incorporated into their own disciplines.

You can have service-learning work well in every discipline.

In this Magna 20-Minute Mentor program, you’ll learn how to think creatively about service-learning, and how you can make it a part of your students’ educational experience.

Led by Barbara Jacoby, Ph.D., Faculty Associate for Leadership and Community Service-Learning, University of Maryland, College Park., we show you what service-learning can add to your courses and provide concrete implementation strategies.

You’ll learn:

  • The key principles of service-learning—reflection and reciprocity.
  • The benefits of service-learning for both students and communities.
  • How to link activities to outcomes.
  • The different types of service-learning.
  • How to assess outcomes and grade service-learning.

You learn through case studies of disciplines as varied as college writing and engineering,  Jacoby helps you appreciate the ample opportunities you have to introduce service-learning to your own courses.
