Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractResearchpeer-review


Over the past decade, interest in, and practical application of, service-learning has been bourgeoned. This is particularly true in management disciplines, where service-learning has become increasingly visible through journal special issues, increased grant funding, and its fit with AACSB demands. Yet, the question remains, is service-learning really a viable teaching tool for the average management educator? In this session, two first-timers share their struggles with service learning--their successes and failures. Using their stories as fodder, a
large group reflection session will be led by a seasoned service-learning practitioner. If you’ve ever wondered about the realities of service-learning...come to this session.
