Teaching Social Justice: Intergenerational Service Learning in a Digital Media Course
Finucane, Margaret O.; Seiter, Linda M.; Gehlert, Nathan
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v10 n1 p148-158 2018
Digital media play an increasingly dominant role in reinforcing and challenging power inequality in social and institutional relationships. This paper describes how a service-learning component engaged students in community-based interactions that not only deepened their understanding of course content but also increased their commitment to diversity, community issues, and personal development. A close look at three case studies shows that integrating service learning into a first year seminar on digital media and social justice had positive outcomes for students when intentionally paired with community partners offering course-related projects.
