Instructors who wish to have their courses identified as IPFW Service Learning Courses in the Schedule of Classes need to address the following 4 criteria. Please be brief, but clear; provide enough detail so that it is clear the use of service learning in your course meets these criteria*.
- Students engage in useful service to individuals, organizations, schools, or other entities in the community, and the service activities relate to the subject matter of the course.
- The methods by which students' service activities are evaluated are made clear to them, as well as who will conduct the evaluations.
- Guidance is provided to assist students in connecting their learning in the course with their service activities.
- Evaluation of the student's service is based on evidence of learning course material through reflection, not for completion of the service activities alone.
