Vocational Exploration through Service: The Effect of Service-Learning on Student Understanding of God's Calling
Feenstra, Jennifer S.
Journal of Education & Christian Belief, v15 n1 p65-74 2011
College is a time of exploration for students. College students who are Christian may also engage in exploration of God's call on their lives, a discernment of their vocation. One pedagogical technique that can help us help students explore vocation is service-learning. To better understand their vocation, students need to understand themselves and fit that with what the world needs (Buechner, 1992). Research on service-learning suggests that both identity and knowledge of the world are expanded through service-learning experiences.
