Service-Learning Modules

These modules are meant as a tool to assist professors and teachers who are interested in incorporating service-learning in their current courses, but do not have the time to learn more about it in a group setting. The modules give users the opportunity to learn and work at their own pace.

The modules are divided into specific topics, including a discussion of what defines service-learning and the various steps involved in the implementation of service-learning pedagogy. We have also included the readings for each module.
