Service-Learning is a creative learning method which helps students to integrate academic classroom learning with experiential learning in the community.
Service-learning allows students to appreciate the realities of problems discussed in the classroom and in academic books and papers and allows them to test out solutions proposed through rendering services at street level and thus examine the validity of some of the premises.
The key is to help students learn the art of reflection in the midst of their participation in community service. Walking the streets in the local communities, the students will have a better grasp of the issues and challenges confronting them, and perhaps from an outsider’s perspective, may be able to suggest new ideas and initiatives.
Most importantly, it provides an excellent opportunity to develop relationships and experience the face-to-face reality of engagement in a local community context and truly put a human face to the complex societal problems we care about.
