International Service Learning

Written by  September 3, 2012
A detailed examination of why, and under what conditions, international service learning programs can be an effective teaching strategy.

The international service experience provides opportunities for additional learning goals, activities, and relationships that are not available in a domestic service learning course or in a traditional study abroad course.  This book focuses on conducting research on International Service Learning  (ISL), which includes developing and evaluating hypotheses about ISL outcomes and measuring its impact on students, faculty, and communities. The volume provides a pioneering analysis of and understanding of why and under what conditions ISL is an effective pedagogy. The contributors demonstrate sensitivity to ethical implications of ISL, to issues of power and privilege, to the integrity of partnerships, to reflection, reciprocity, and community benefits.
