This interactive workshop will offer a practical framework for helping students address significant social concerns, engage them as learners and responsible citizens, and assess their service learning outcomes. It will present an overview of assessment tools used in a multi-state, three-year grant project among six community colleges supported by the NY-based Teagle Foundation. Essay questions and a scoring rubric to assess students’ service learning outcomes based on five variables are provided as well as findings and reflections on the assessment process. Examples of high-quality and sustainable service learning projects in various disciplines are highlighted. Participants also will learn the importance of documenting service learning on a student engagement transcript to enhance resumes and college applications. Take home resources are included.
Learning outcomes:
  • Create and assess high-quality service learning courses that engage students in addressing community issues
  • Design engagement activities that foster students’ understanding of their responsibilities to the public good
  • Apply proven strategies about service learning and assessment as a teaching and learning tool leading to essential learning outcomes and student agency
