Student Perspectives on the Impact of Service Learning on the Educational Experience
Cooke, Colleen A.; Kemeny, M. Elizabeth
Schole: A Journal of Leisure Studies and Recreation Education, v29 n1 2014
A research study investigated student perspectives on service learning during the TRAIL to Wellness program, a four-week leisure education program for veterans being treated for substance abuse. The research explored the students perspectives on their own learning at the end of 15 weeks. Based upon the content analysis of open-ended questions about the service learning program, several themes emerged: 1) classroom preparation improves the service learning experience, 2) service learning activities improve students understanding of the therapeutic recreation process, and 3) the experience prompts self-awareness.
