Service-Learning in the Disciplines

These practical guides from the American Association for Higher Education and Accreditation are intended for faculty and service-learning directors, combining the “how-to” information and rigorous intellectual framework that teachers seek.

Graphic of book covers

The distinguishing characteristic of the series is that the contributors to each volume are scholars writing for peers in their own discipline. Each volume discusses how service-learning can be implemented within a specific discipline, and what that discipline contributes to the pedagogy of service-learning. Each of these twenty-one titles offers the theoretical background and practical pedagogical chapters describing the design, implementation, and outcomes of specific service-learning programs, as well as annotated bibliographies, program descriptions, and course syllabi.
