Bringing an Ethnographic Sensibility to Service-Learning Assessment
Polin, Deborah Keisch; Keene, Arthur S.
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v16 n2 p22-37 Spr 2010
This paper explores the methodological implications of applying an ethnographic sensibility to evaluation in service-learning. It describes the evolution of such a method over the past 10 years within the Citizen Scholars Program at the University of Massachusetts, and outlines what we have learned from employing this method, as well as the challenges we face as we move toward institutionalizing this approach. (Contains 8 notes.)
