The Center for Experiential Learning has multiple resources available for faculty to support service-learning pedagogy.
- Reflection - is a cornerstone of both Ignatian and service-learning pedagogy. There are many ways of facilitating reflection with your students. These Reflection Strategies offer great tools to engage students through both discussion-oriented and written reflection practices. The CEL staff highly recommend the use of The Civically Engaged Reader and Taking Action, two volumes of short readings designed to engage active citizens in personal and political reflection. These volumes are available for use at CEL with additional facilitation support available at www.civicreflection.org.
- Curriculum - at the end of August, all service-learning faculty will have access to lessons that can be used to engage students in the fundamental questions and process of service-learning. The link to the lessons on sakai will be made available shortly.
- Research Articles - the CEL has gathered together numerous articles that make the case for service-learning, describe the efficacy of discipline-based projects, discuss the link between service-learning and social justice, and raise thought-provoking questions for service-learning practitioners. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to borrow a copy.
- Service-Learning Manuals - several excellent manuals on service-learning planning, implementation, evaluation and assessment are available from CEL staff. If you are interested, email us at email@example.com.
