The Center for Teaching and Learning Presents

Student Engagement through Service Learning


Service-learning is a learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instructional objectives.  This involves getting students engaged in structured service activities within the context of the course material.  It necessarily includes self-reflection on the part of the student and is intended to change both the student and the community they work with.

This presentation will discuss how service learning was used in an undergraduate Operations Management course in the College of Business, describe the specific projects pursued, and review the lessons learned from this initiative.
