Critical perspectives on service-learning in higher education

Service-learning in higher education combines students' academic coursework with their voluntary work, enhancing students' learning and benefiting the community. The key to unlocking the connections between the theory and practice of service-learning is critical reflection, which is examined in this book along with students' academic reflective writing and assessment. The power and dynamics of service-learning are explored through the construction of a theoretical paradigm and the assertion that it can be extended further to critical pedagogy. This book takes a refreshingly critical and innovative look at service-learning, employing theoretical and empirical work to shed new light on this approach to education
