Undergraduate Learning through Engaged Scholarship and University-Community Partnerships
Tarantino, Kristen L.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v21 n2 p103-130 2017
The impact of university-community partnerships and involvement in engaged scholarship on student learning was examined through in-depth interviews with undergraduate members of a student-led, community-based research organization at a selective mid-Atlantic university. Students reported benefits of participation that included increasing critical thinking skills, changing perspectives, and practicing facilitation and decision-making skills. Students also reported experiences of enhancing learning by developing a deeper understanding and ownership of the project. Findings suggest the need for a deeper look at how students are interacting with communities and how that interaction can lead to enhanced learning outcomes.
