Publication Date: 2010-11-09
International Service Learning (ISL) borrows from the domains of service learning, study abroad, and international education to create a new pedagogy that adds new and unique value from this combination. It is a high-impact pedagogy with the potential to improve students' academic attainment, contribute to their personal growth, and develop global civic outcomes. This book focuses on conducting research on ISL, which includes developing and evaluating hypotheses about ISL outcomes and measuring its impact on students, faculty, and communities.
Over 950 researchers, students and practitioners committed to advancing research on service-learning and community engagement, are the foundation for the work of IARSLCE, the International Association for Research on Service-Learning and Community Engagement.
