Instructional Workshop: Community Service Learning (CSL)
Organized service experiences that meet community needs, integrated into curriculum
o Classroom learning and volunteer work (service aligns with course content)
Evaluation based on placement supervisors’ evaluations and reflection projects
o Critical reflections before, during, after service work
Service equally benefits student and community (ABC’s: agency, belonging, competence)
o Not a helping “saviour” role but a learning role to be approached with humility and open
eyes, absence of judgement
o Falls into learning objectives that have to do with habits of mind, that tend to get brushed
under the rug under mastery of skills and knowledge
Constructivism and experiential education knowledge constructed in real settings, can use
scaffolding to support students
Strengths:

world; increases social awareness and responsibility
o Professors create partnerships with community groups; student engagement/learning
o Community partners
Weaknesses:
o Difficulty assessing performance small sample size, lack of longitudinal data
