Service-eLearning: Educating for Citizenship
Edited by Amber Dailey-Herbert, Emily Donnellie-Sallee and Laurie N. DiPadova-Stocks

This edited collection, the first of its kind, marries the two fastest-growing movements in higher education:  service-learning and eLearning.  While these two innovative pedagogies are widely assumed to be incompatible, this collection highlights their complementary approaches as a new teaching method for 21st Century learners.  The collection offers a new pedagogical model—service-eLearning—defined as an integrative pedagogy that engages learners through technology in civic inquiry, service, reflection, and action.

Service-eLearning: Educating for Citizenship starts a conversation about the marriage of two powerful educational innovations. While readers of this collection may be familiar with existing work on service-learning and technology use, this book demonstrates the potential of a new model which acknowledges eLearning as a pedagogy within its own right. The new model presented here blends eLearning pedagogy with existing approaches to service-learning. The result is an integrated pedagogical approach: Service-eLearning. As the work presented herein highlights, service-eLearning responds to the challenges of today’s rapidly-changing, technology-mediated reality.
