"I learned the definitions of service-learning; I was impressed that service-learning was just a small part of the larger picture," says one faculty participant.

Faculty from various departments at Sonoma State University came together for the latest annual Tips & Trends in Service-Learning workshop.

Attendees of the workshop learned about what defines service-learning, service-learning pedagogies, and current trends in academic planning through lively group discussions and an engaging presentation. An essential part of the workshop is when the faculty members learn the importance of guided reflection activities. Guided reflection activities are a key element in service-learning because they allow students to reflect on their work while making connections between their service-learning experience and academic/civic learning objectives of their course. Service-learning is fantastic because it benefits both the students and the faculty while getting crucial work done in the community.
