Too much of a Good Thing? Refocusing the Benefits of Community-Engaged Learning

Can you ever have too much of a good thing? Some non-profits think so. Without more intentional thought to the impact of student involvement in community organizations, goodwill, positive intent and benefits may be lost to ineffective relationships and untapped potential. Wendy MacDonald explores the impact of CSL on the capacity of community-based organizations in this article from the Trends & Issues series of the HR Council for the Voluntary & Non-Profit Sector.
Refocusing the Benefits of Community-engaged Learning (pdf file).

Enhancing Value for Nonprofit Community Partners, the paper Wendy presented to the Association for Nonprofit and Social Economy Research in May, 2009.

Does service-learning, as a pedagogical approach, influence students’ sense of civic responsibility? Rebecca Denby, International Exchange Coordinator at the The University of Western Ontario, explored this question in her 2008 Master of Education Thesis, also considering whether a social justice perspective of service-learning is superior to a charity perspective in influencing students’ sense of civic responsibility.
