Service-Learning is a means of accomplishing learning through the service process and thus gaining new competencies. Service-Learning is a method which combines learning and teaching. Students learn and grow via planning, implementing, and reflecting on their own service. There are four features of Service-Learning courses:
1. Supplementing academic courses to implement what is learnt.
2. Meeting the needs of community and recipients of service.
3. Learning to reflect.
4. Cultivating students’ awareness and conscience as citizens.
Service-Learning is to experience the spirit of service; we learn how to reflect via the process of learning how to provide service. In order to achieve development in students and to meet the community’s needs, this course requires guidance, service and reflection.
