Practical Wisdom for Conducting Research on Service Learning: Pursuing Quality and Purpose; Edited by Julie A. Hatcher, Robert G. Bringle and Thomas W. Hahn; Foreword by Jeffrey Howard

For scholars seeking to undertake consequential research in service-learning and community engagement (SLCE), this book provides accounts by preeminent scholars about the trajectories of their research, their methodologies, lessons learned along the way, as well as their views about the future direction of the field.

The contributors to this volume represent a range of disciplines and fields including education, history, organizational leadership, political science, philanthropic studies, psychology, and public health, as well as both qualitative and quantitative traditions, and offer models of scholarly learning that contribute to a knowledge base that can guide practice and further the broader public purposes of the academy.

They articulate how they view their research on SLCE as having broader purposes that matter to them personally as well as professionally, and illustrate how the “why” and “to what end” of their research can evolve as a program of research develops and matures across time. They identify key choices they made in terms of inquiry and methodology, describe both successes and challenges in establishing and navigating a SLCE research agenda across their careers, and share lessons learned from their research journey to advance the field both domestically and abroad.
