26
Education is not preparation for life.
Education is life itself.
John Dewey
27
Service-Learning
  • Since 1995, 30 hours of Service-Learning are
    required in order to graduate from UW-Eau Claire.
    This requirement is unique to UW System schools.
  • The Community Action and Lifelong Learning (CALL)
    program was a foundation a long-established
    program to match students with volunteer
    experiences in the community.
  • Service-Learning differs from volunteering in its
    emphasis on bringing the service hours back to
    the curriculum and its ability to enhance
    critical-thinking skills.

28
The National and Community Service Trust Act of
1993
Service-learning means a method under which
students ... learn and develop through active
participation in thoughtfully organized service
that
  • is conducted in and meets the needs of a
    community
  • helps foster civic responsibility
  • is integrated into and enhances the academic
    curriculum of students
  • includes structured time for students ... to
    reflect on the service experience

29
Service-Learning as a Milking Stool
  • Service-learning is minimally a three-legged
    stool in which the interests and needs of the
    community, the student and the academic
    institution must be balanced. Each entity must be
    given and must take an equitable responsibility
    for the service and learning.

Garry Hesser Departments of Sociology and Urban
Studies Director of Experiential Education,
Augsburg College
30
Service-Learning as Learning
  • I read
  • and I forget,
  • I see
  • and I remember,
  • I do
  • and I understand.

Confucius
31
Why Do It??
  • Relevancy, Retention, Responsibility
  • Citizenship
  • Campus-Community Collaboration
  • Empowers Students
  • Teaching Innovations for Faculty
  • Personalizes Education
  • Enhances Learning
  • Alumni Giving

32
Service-Learning as a Means to Promote Civic
Engagement
  • Current levels of political engagement, political
    knowledge, political enthusiasm are at alarmingly
    low levels
  • Education should prepare students for active
    citizenship
  • Service-Learning can have a positive impact on
    academic learning as well as an impact on moral
    and civic commitment

33
The most important thing I learned is how
important it is to help others Take this course
seriously, because if you put the effort in, it
will be the best class you take I learned that
it is important to volunteer because we often get
caught up in our own lives and we forget about
other people. Its a good way to get out of your
own world and experience a different
perspective Life is not always as good as you
have it The most important thing I learned was
about me and responsibility I learned a
valuable lesson about myself, the ability to
teach which may change my life by what I decide
to do with it
34
Ive decided to continue volunteering once a
week at the hospital because I enjoy experiencing
the small miracles that occur within the waiting
room They say that society has gotten worse
over the past few decades, well, for a few hours
each week I get to see how society should really
be. Experiencing this helps keep me centered in
my life and keeps everything in perspective.
Who would have thought that the one thing I was
required to do would be one of the most
fulfilling experiences I get to take away from
college. Im thankful the university has this
requirement, because all students should have the
opportunity to experience what Ive been lucky to
experience this past summer volunteering.

when I am going back to the house, I do not feel
like I am going back to someone elses house I
feel that I am going to the place where I am
comfortable.

"Studying abroad gave me a chance to gain an
outside perspective on myself and my country. I
began to question things about my life that I had
never questioned before.... I learned to be open
minded about different people and ideas."
"Studying abroad changed my
life. It expanded my world, gave me insight into
both different cultures and my own, and helped me
to understand who I am as well. It was honestly
the best 4 months of my entire life."
"Costa Rica was an experience of a
lifetime. You will gain a deeper appreciation of
culture and realize that differences make us
unique and special. They bring us close to one
another."
-Angela McAllister (Fall 1999) Australia
-Rebecca Platt (Spring 1999) England
-Kristin Paschke (Fall 1999) Costa Rica
63
"This past semester in Monterrey contributed
greatly to my understanding of Mexican culture,
history and politics. The interaction with both
Mexican and other international students was
entertaining and enriching. The sharing of our
views of Mexico, the U.S. and the rest of the
world widened my horizons and opened my eyes to
other opinions. Overall, it was an unforgettable
experience that helped me look at where I want to
go in life." "Any study abroad program is a
step toward independence and one step closer to
understanding the world around you. I learned
more about my feelings toward my own culture
because I now have something to compare it to. It
was invigorating, challenging (to the mind and
heart), exciting, and it has made me realize how
much life and earth have to offer me."

Making Eau Claire a Home Away From Home
  • Kay has made a very positive contribution to my
    life. She has sacrificed her time patience, and
    kindness in return for nothing. To be honest, I
    do not know how I would have survived my first
    semester without her.

  • They came into my life a little more than three

  • They do not treat me like a guest, someone they

Making Eau Claire a Home Away From Home
  • She is very caring and sensitive to each of us

    different cultures.

  • Make learning useful
  • Awaken students to social, economic, and cultural
    problems
  • Help learners become teachers, and teachers
