Currents in Teaching and Learning: service-learning edition

Currents in Teaching and Learning
Special edition on Service-Learning

This special edition of Currents in Teaching and Learning points a wide-angle lens on the pedagogy of service-learning. In 2008, the Association of American Colleges and Universities identified service-learning, or community-based learning, as a key high-impact educational practice. The growth of service-learning centers at university campuses nationwide and an increasing body of research, supported in part through the International Association for Research on Service-learning and Community Engagement, indicates further growth in American higher education. Despite the current promise of this pedagogy to teach about and address social inequities, the future of service-learning is not assured or clear. Developments in digital educational technology and the “culture of assessment,” drivers of current higher-education theory and practice, minimize practices associated with social justice and new learning.
