Attitudes toward Academic Service Learning Semesters: A Comparison of Business Students with Non-Business Students
Manolis, Chris; Burns, David J.
Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v11 n1 p13-32 Jan 2011
This study examines the attitudes of university students toward academic service semesters and their interest in participating in them. The findings suggest that students' attitudes toward an urban-based academic service learning program may be multidimensional. Four of the six factors identified in the study as being associated with students' attitudes toward the academic service learning program were found to be related to their level of interest in participating in the program. Interestingly, no evidence was observed which would suggest that business students possess lower attitudes toward academic service learning semesters than non-business majors or that they would be less interested in participating in them. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
