The Role of Reflection in Service Learning
Dubinsky, James
Business Communication Quarterly, v69 n3 p306-311 2006
Service-learning pedagogy rests on a stool of three legs: service, learning, and reflection. In this field, much has been written on service and learning, but not much has been written specifically about reflection. Given the critical role reflection plays as a bridge between service and learning, the goal of this article is to offer a brief introduction to reflection and a few activities useful in fostering it. These activities, ranging from journals to end-of-semester reflection essays, enable students to ponder and evaluate their experience, consider its value, and transform it into knowledge they will use later as writers and citizens.
