"Bringing It All Back Home": An Interdisciplinary Model for Community-Based Learning
Schwartz, Earl
Journal of College and Character, v16 n1 p53-61 2015
Leaders of community-based learning programs must prove the worth of their programs to community hosts, while engaging students at appropriate levels of learning. Pitfalls multiply when programs are interdisciplinary, involve multiple sites, and/or deal with questions of social equity. Such programs must effectively match and prepare students and site supervisors, coordinate disparate curricular elements, facilitate communication between participants, and provide an educationally valid approach to ethically charged aspects of the curriculum. The 2007-2010 Hamline University "Bringing It All Back Home" project, focused on environmental and justice issues associated with large-scale urban redevelopment, provides one model for meeting challenges that such programs commonly pose.
