A Checklist for Service-Learning in Economics

Incorporating service-learning into any course involves careful preparation. This checklist helps faculty begin the process of developing an effective service-learning course in economics. The first step is to prepare and design your course. This involves defining learning, service and civic engagement goals. In the second step, community partners and service activities are chosen in order to implement a service experience. An important third step is reflection; reflection provides students opportunities to link classroom learning to their service experiences. Finally, both formative and summative assessment activities are developed to promote and measure student learning.
