Charting a New Course and Facilitating College and School Collaboration through Service Learning and Service Leadership Development.
Murray, David R.
This paper discusses Kentucky School Reform and its impact on higher education; how Alice Lloyd College engages with teaching practitioners to address their needs through service learning and service leadership development; and potential applications of the program in other institutions. The paper recommends that future service learning ventures: (1) should be interdisciplinary efforts involving the entire higher education community; (2) should be infused into the curriculum, course work and field experiences; (3) should be diversified in their service efforts; (4) should be continuous processes focused on goals that will improve academic and social conditions; (5) extend into out-of-school activities; (6) incorporate projects that engage people at their appropriate levels; (7) empower people to solve their own problems; and (8) promote citizenship emphasizing lifelong service as a member of a global community.
