Service Learning Workshop

Service-learning is a progressive way of teaching that has been adopted by university faculty members nationwide. As distinguished from traditional community service, service-learning is intentionally linked with an academic course and incorporates specific pedagogical goals for community service -- including structured reflection activities within the classroom. With social justice at its philosophical root, service-learning pedagogy naturally combines the life of the mind with habits of the heart. ASU faculty members from a variety of disciplines have adopted service-learning as a teaching tool in their classrooms and have found that service projects complement and enhance other traditional learning vehicles such as reading and writing.
