Community College Service Learning Pedagogy
Fiume, Peter Francis
Community College Enterprise, v15 n2 p75-93 Fall 2009
Noting the community college mandate for promoting civic engagement, the author addresses the issue of developing civically engaged community college classrooms in the midst of a decline in civic engagement nationwide. The paper proposes service learning pedagogy as a method for synthesizing classroom based academic knowledge and community based experiential knowledge by connecting the campus to the community within the context of specific curriculum. The paper includes suggestions for implementing service learning in various academic disciplines, specific instructional methods grounded in service learning pedagogy and a detailed discussion concerning the role of the faculty in promoting civic engagement. (Contains 2 tables.)
