Service-learning aims at developing service experiences for students that enhance learning while addressing community needs through reciprocal campus-community partnerships. While some educators have focused on discipline-specific learning objectives, others have embraced a social change orientation, by promoting social awareness and encouraging social responsibility among students in addressing key community concerns. This shift in focus, known as “critical service-learning” brings implications related to the developments and sustainability of campus-community partnerships, as well as to classroom dynamics.

This presentation will be anchored in this paradigm shift towards a critical approach to service-learning. As a result of attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Compare and contrast traditional and critical service-learning approaches
  • Identify barriers and articulate strategies to applying critical service-learning principles in planning, implementing and evaluating campus-community collaborative projects
  • Discuss how session contents and examples can be adapted to respective disciplines
