Learning outcomes of ISL in the Japanese context
This paper reports on the program characteristics effect on learning outcomes. The author examine 60 written papers on "International Service-Learning" at ICU from 1996 to 2010 by employing the Eyler and Giles’s model in 1999. Unique outcomes at ICU are the impact on career choice and deep consideration of what “service” is, but the “citizenship” outcome is less noticeable at ICU. The research outcome contributes to reinforcing a theory that service-learning in different institutions has its characteristics and approaches.
