Service learning is an effective teaching strategy which integrates thoughtfully organized service experiences with guided reflection to enhance student learning of course materials. Widely utilized in higher education, it is used here at Parkland College by close to 20 faculty members in 15 different courses, and is a prominent feature of the A with Honors program. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated by research and reports of faculty at this college and across the country. The strategy is endorsed by the American Association of University Professors, The American Association of Community Colleges, College Campus Compact, and many other learned societies and professional organizations.
This page is a combined collection of A with Honors Service Learning projects and the Parkland College Service Learning Newsletter, which is issued bi-monthly.
