Engaging Sharp-Leadenhall: An Interdisciplinary Faculty Collaboration in Service-Learning
Falk, Audrey; Durington, Matthew; Lankford, Elsa
Journal of Public Scholarship in Higher Education, v2 p31-46 2012
This article reports on an interdisciplinary collaboration in the context of service-learning. Faculty members from the disciplines of family studies, anthropology, and media production worked collaboratively to develop and implement service-learning projects involving their classes and Sharp-Leadenhall, one of the oldest historically African-American communities in Baltimore City, Maryland. The authors argue that collaborative, interdisciplinary service-learning can respond to complex, real-world problems more fully than can be achieved through single-course, single-discipline service-learning. Additionally, this approach to service-learning provides faculty an opportunity to model interdisciplinary inquiry for students.
