Reflection Before The Experience

Although counterintuitive to students, reflection prior to the service learning experience may prove the most valuable.  In order to allay fears, avoid pitfalls, and adequately prepare, students should spend a considerable amount of time studying the demographics and challenges that lay ahead.  Some of the methods include:

  • Case Studies
  • Team Based Learning
  • Problem Based Learning
  • Interviews
  • Letter of Recommendation Exercise
