Academic Service-Learning 101
Service-learning is one of QCC’s high-impact practices. Service-learning reinforces academic learning,
addresses community needs, and instills civic responsibility. Through analysis and reflection, participants
identify and absorb what they have learned.
Grades for service-learning are based upon student reflections.
"Process for Developing a Service-Learning Project" is a useful flow chart of the project planning process.
Please describe the project in your syllabus in enough detail so that your students will understand what they will be doing, the rationale for the project and the schedule of how it will fit into the semester.
Please identify the course and gen ed objectives that will be met through the project.
Please also identify the community partner, if known, and the need of the partner that the project will address/meet.
