A Chameleon with a Complex: Searching for Transformation in International Service-Learning
Kiely, Richard
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v10 n2 p5-20 Spr 2004
This article reports findings from a longitudinal case study investigating how students experience perspective transformation from their participation in international service-learning program with an explicit social justice orientation. Findings indicate that each student experienced profound changes in their world-view in at least one of six dimensions: political, moral, intellectual, personal, spiritual, and cultural. Importantly, the study found that students who initially expressed a willingness to change their lifestyle and work for social justice experienced ongoing conflict and struggle in their attempts to translate their critical awareness into meaningful action. (Contains 3 tables and 8 notes.)
