Linking Learning to Service -
Service is the civic responsibility of every community member, and many FGCU students already make community service part of their lives. By making service-learning a component of our undergraduate degree programs and offering these opportunities to all students, FGCU acknowledges the importance of service as a learning tool. Through service-learning experiences, you will learn about yourself, your community, have the opportunity to use your analytical and communication skills, receive practical experience, and develop a continuing interest in service. Experiences gained through service-learning courses will have a direct correlation and relevancy to the knowledge and skills being taught in the classroom.
Reflecting on Your Service-Learning Experiences:
Reflecting on your service-learning experience provides an opportunity for learning, growth, and development. The most productive reflective activities occur immediately after you complete a service activity or occur periodically during the course of long-term service commitments. In fact, reflection links learning to service and distinguishes service-learning from community service. Formal reflection activities are a planned part of service-learning courses, and students are encouraged to engage in reflection in their independent service-learning activities as well.
The methods listed below can be used as reflective activities in the classroom or for your independent service-learning experiences:
