Abstract

[Extract]

Service Learning

• Allows students to recognise their own capacity to act as agents of social change (Butin, 2006)

• Gives students an opportunity to exercise their agency (Petray & Halbert in review)

• Nurtures "citizen-scholars" who can link individual outcomes with structural forces (Mobley 2007)

• Link between theory & practice

• Situates students as global citizens who act within local communities

• Encourages critical reflection (McKinney, Howery et al 2004; Rajaram 2007; Dean 2007; Lewis 2004)
