Preparing Hispanic Students for the Real World: Benefits of Problem-Based Service Learning Projects
West, Jean Jaymes; Simmons, Donna
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v11 n2 p123-135 Apr 2012
Student learning is enriched by problem-based service learning (PBSL) projects. For Hispanic students, the learning that takes place in PBSL projects may be even more significant, although the research published in academic journals about client-based projects for Hispanic students is limited. This article begins to advance an understanding of how PBSL projects can enhance the learning of Hispanic students. Data were gathered from 5 business courses and approximately 127 students, predominantly Hispanic, who served as consultants for various business organizations. (Contains 1 table.)
