Student Learning Through Community Involvement: A Report on Three Studies of the Service-Learning Model.
Kiel, David H.
This document investigates the educational impact of service-learning internships arranged in North Carolina. Emphasis is placed on what students report they learn in service-learning internships and what conditions support those learnings. Results indicate the learning benefits most frequently felt by student interns was (1) the development of more hopeful, knowledgeable and concerned attitudes toward community problemsolving, (2) increased motivation to work and learn in communities, (3) the opportunity for personal learning in the realm of action, and (4) immediate impact on student intern behavior and plans of the future. The learning impact of the internship is, however, greatly reduced by the lack of appropriate follow-up when the student returns to campus. (MJM)
