Service learning is a teaching approach that combines what is learned in the classroom with real- world experiences. Students engaged in service learning literally “learn by doing” and use the community and their experience as a “live textbook” for the class – another powerful source of information to complement course readings, lectures, and discussions.
Service learning allows students to increase understanding of class topics, gain hands-on experiences and network with members of the community. Students who have been a part of often feel a great sense of satisfaction – not only have they learned new information, gained new skills and met new people, but they have also provided a service to the community.
