Webinar: Conducting and Supporting the Scholarship of Service-Learning – Apr 17

Posted by Barbara Jacoby Consulting on April 9, 2024

As service-learning grows, so does the need for the scholarship of service-learning, or SoSL. Faculty members wonder what are the best service-learning practices to achieve their desired learning outcomes. Campus administrators and external funders want to know about the impacts of service-learning on students, communities and institutional priorities. Assessment provides useful descriptive data that tells us what is happening in a particular situation. SoSL research is generalizable and asks why things occur and what are the conditions under which they do or do not occur.

Features of this webinar include:

  • Dimensions of high-quality SoSL
  • Who are SoSL researchers
  • A research agenda for SoSL that proposes a wide range of critical questions
  • SoSL methodologies
  • Steps in developing a SoSL project
  • Challenges unique to SoSL
  • Providing support and guidance for SoSL
  • Journals that publish SoSL
  • Q-and-A and opportunity for participants to propose SoTL topic

Facilitator: Barbara Jacoby, Higher Education Consultant
