An Examination of the Transformative Learning Potential of Alternative Spring Breaks
Mann, Jessica; DeAngelo, Linda
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v53 n4 p416-428 2016
As institutions seek to offer students an educational experience equipped with opportunities to develop as not only active learners but also engaged citizens, service-learning initiatives in the form of alternative spring breaks (ASB) have become prevalent. This study examines the potential of ASBs, as service-learning initiatives, to deliver a transformative learning experience. Findings indicate that depth of learning and growth is contingent upon trip type. Implications for practice and recommendations for practitioners are discussed.
