The Effect of Service-Learning on Interdisciplinary Learning and Curriculum Reinforcement, and Its Application to Public School Environments
Kovarik, Madeline
International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v4 n1 Article 11 Jan 2010
This qualitative research project focused on the impact of service-learning experiences on an interdisciplinary college freshman course. The research included the impact on academic learning, the application of concepts into a public school educational environment, and the perceptions regarding the contribution to the school being served. Participants were college freshmen students who received pre and post surveys and participated in both verbal and written reflections. Analysis of the survey responses and reflection data indicated the service-learning experiences enhanced student learning. Analysis of data also indicated a disconnect between recognized community needs and college student involvement toward fulfilling the needs.
