Inspiring the Civil Revolution: The Role of Bullying Education and Experiential Learning
Gilbert, Jacqueline A.; Raffo, Deana M.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v26 n2 p159-176 2015
The authors explore service-learning as a pedagogy to promote bullying prevention within schools. Specifically, they explain the preparatory experiences necessary for students in an undergraduate Experiential Learning Principles of Management course to interface with high school freshmen and the reciprocal impact that students at both levels had upon one another. Information on classroom instruction to create bullying awareness is provided to assist educators considering this partnership and to showcase positive learning experiences (along with areas that could have benefitted from a different approach). The article concludes with implications for course restructuring to expand on civility and educational outreach.
