The Case for Service-Learning: Overcoming the Obstacles
Bradley, Carol Lyon; Saracino, Marie
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v105 n2 p41-43 2013
The ultimate goal in educating students is to produce competent new professionals. A well-planned service-learning project with the appropriate community partner allows students to become more engaged in the process of learning as they meet course objectives and gain a greater sense of self-efficacy upon completion of the project. With a successful experience, students are more prepared to be a competent member of their future profession. In this article, Carol Lyon Bradley and Marie Saracino define successful service-learning and address solutions to the perceived obstacles for implementing successful experiences at colleges and universities.
