A Study of the Learning Portfolio and Effect of Integrated...
This action research on teaching practice originates from a reflection on the traditional curriculum and teaching. A review on the content of business administration courses reveals that most suffer from dissociation of theory and practice. Godfrey et al. (2005) found in his criticism on traditional university education that one of the reasons for the theory-practice gap is that traditional education neglects experiential learning, and lays too much emphasis on methodology. Students thus lose problem-solving skills. Service learning programs come into play at this point as a ready solution to the rarity of practical scenarios and difficulty in developing practical curriculum, because service learning adopts the experiential learning model.
