Principles of Good Practice in Combining Service and Learning

  • Academic credit is for learning, not for service.
  • Do not compromise academic rigor.
  • Set learning goals for students.
  • Establish criteria for the selection of community service placements.
  • Provide educationally sound mechanisms to harvest the community learning.
  • Provide supports for students to learn how to harvest community learning.
  • Minimize the distinction between the student’s community learning role and the classroom learning role.
  • Re-think the faculty instructional role.
  • Be prepared for uncertainty and variation in student learning outcomes.
  • Maximize the community responsibility orientation of the course.
