Long-Term Impact of Service Learning in Environmental Studies
MacFall, Janet
Journal of College Science Teaching, v41 n3 p26-31 Jan 2012
Long-term impacts from a senior course in Environmental Studies were evaluated by a survey of program graduates (36 respondents, 50% response rate) who had participated in the course over an 8-year permiod. Each year, the Senior Seminar used a service-learning pedagogy with a different environmentally focused project ranging from web resource development to environmental assessments. Survey respondents indicated that the course had long-term outcomes in commitment to civic engagement and environmental stewardship, fostering the ability to work with professionals and the community, to communicate with professionals in the field, and to relate ecological principles to real-world issues.
