In-Course Instructor-Guided Service Learning in a Community College General Psychology Class
Goomas, David T.; Weston, Melissa B.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v36 n5 p386-389 2012
Students enrolled in two general psychology classes at El Centro College (ECC) of the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) were offered the opportunity to earn extra credit by performing up to 20 hours of service learning. Benefits of service learning were observed in student development, including exploration of career possibilities, increased awareness of community needs, and improved ability to relate to others. The researchers specifically focused on students who did not participate in the optional service learning component. These students also reported benefits by being integrated into to three in-course instructor-guided service learning sessions.
