Service Learning Experiences in University Science Degree Courses
Sherman, Ann; MacDonald, Leo
Innovative Higher Education, v34 n4 p235-244 Oct 2009
This article describes a study about a service learning project at a small undergraduate university. We examined how professors and students became involved in service learning through course work and related activities. This study sought to find out why participation in service learning is low in post-secondary education science and mathematics courses. Participants described challenges to participation as well as benefits which, if emphasized, may allow for some growth in participation by science degree students.
