Academic Service Learning (ASL) is a non-traditional experiential learning model where students gain experience through community involvement and reflection, and ultimately are able to link community service to academic study. Students understand related course content and civic responsibility via a period of highly structured reflection. This experimental learning model is a way of learning through experience and may also be defined as an instructional methodology that is integrated into the academic curriculum and provides planned time for students to think about real-life situations in their communities. The main purpose of ASL is for students to obtain better skills via continuous reflection of their experiences within the community where they had to accomplish real objectives. Service learning is conducted according to the needs of the community. In this article, the author talks about academic service learning in physical education teacher education (PETE) programs.
