Changed for Good: Investigating How Students Become Agents of Change through Service-Learning Experiences
Service-learning has been recognized as an experiential learning pedagogy with great power to transform students into agents of change by deepening their social awareness and responsibility. This session seeks to arrive at finer-grained understanding of how such development occurs. Through facilitated discussion, participants will explore this transformative process and identify key elements crucial to it. Both practitioners and non-practitioners of service-learning may take away new insights on supporting and nurturing their students’ personal growth in experiential learning. Participants will also brainstorm to contribute towards a research agenda that deepens the discourse on the transformative power of service-learning.
