Presentation Proposal: Critical reflection is an integral part of all service-learning experiences. This interactive presentation will focus on crafting significant reflection activities and assignments for service-learning students. Using examples from her own courses and from other experienced practitioners, the facilitator will guide participants through the careful design of meaningful reflection activities. Whether you are experienced or a novice, teaching your own S-L course or providing support to a faculty member who teaches an S-L course, practitioners will take away guaranteed practical reflection strategies that will help students connect service with learning.
