How do you know if you are utilizing the pedagogy of Service Learning?
- Do you have a course that is engaged with the community?
- Are the students reflecting on the community engagement and the course content through discussion, written, or other artistic form (music, drawing, digital media, etc.)?
- Is the project with the community mutually beneficial to both the community and the university?
- Are the course content and the community engagement project aligned?
