Workshop on Conducting Research on Service Learning
As service learning becomes more prevalent around the world, academics have an
opportunity to conduct research on the pedagogy. The general purpose of this workshop is to share information that will enhance the breadth, depth, and quality of research on service learning. “Research” is a somewhat contested term that is used in a variety of ways across the disciplines. Research, in this workshop, will be placed at the intersection of theory, research design (quantitative and qualitative), measurement, and practice because the best research has relationships to these domains. Central to this view is the aspiration that good, rigorous, well-designed, and well-executed research will contribute to answering “why” questions that have generalizable implications that contribute to a knowledge base that informs both future research and improved practice.
