Service-learning courses have been studied and consistently proven to increase student engagement in learning, student retention, self-awareness, leadership abilities, and more. More and more campuses are realizing that creating this type of learning in the classroom will contribute heavily to institutions' missions - increasing civic engagement, creating global citizens, increasing learning, and increasing students' leadership potential. Service-learning is carried out in many different ways across the country, but faculty are essential in making these courses effective.

Join Academic Impressions to learn crucial considerations involved in developing a meaningful service-learning course that:

Addresses effective partnerships with service sites,
Incorporates the experience into course syllabi, and
Increases learning using student reflection on the experience.


Faculty who are interested in implementing service-learning courses will learn how to structure service-learning courses in order to create optimal learning and meet curricular objectives.

Instructional designers, faculty developers, and service-learning departments will learn key components of effective service-learning design in order to most effectively coach faculty when building courses.
