Why We Use Service-Learning: A Report Outlining a Typology of Three Approaches to This Form of Communication Pedagogy
Britt, Lori L.
Communication Education, v61 n1 p80-88 2012
This report offers a framework that acknowledges that not all service-learning shares the same rationales or goals for student development, or engages students in the same way in communities. Key differences are explicated in approaches to service-learning pedagogy that focus on (a) skill-set practice and reflexivity, (b) civic values and critical citizenship, and (c) social justice activism. This typology seeks to broaden the operational definition of service-learning pedagogy to acknowledge and promote multiple approaches to linking service and learning and communicate that service-learning is full of complexity and possibility.
