The objective of reflective service-learning is to address three main categories of learning: academic enhancement, civic learning, and personal growth.
Eckerd's General Education program has identified the following reflective service-learning goals:
- Intellectual engagement
- Critical thinking
- Connection between academic material and SL
- Problem solving
- Constructive community engagement
- Civic responsibility
- Global understanding
- Environmental awareness
- Understanding of social issues
- Communication skills
- Values identification
- Openness to diverse perspectives
- Critique of assumptions
Every reflective service-learning experience is not expected to address every goal in each category. Instead, in designing reflective service-learning courses or preparing for co-curricular service experiences, faculty and/or students will identify a subset of the above learning goals. These goals will be addressed in reflection assignments, which will ultimately form the service-learning portfolio.
When completing the RSL requirement for Gen Ed, use this document for detailed descriptions of each learning goal and associated prompts. It is recommended you review the learning goals and prompts before selecting goals in your co-curricular service proposal, as this will determine your written reflection.
