Service-Learning Ideas and Implementation
Presented by Erin Riney, Director, Center for College and Community Service
Service-learning sounds like a terrific idea—integrating real-world applications of learning with service to the community in a way that truly engages students and achieves learning outcomes—but often leaves those who hear about it with many questions. How is service-learning “done”? What would this look like in my classroom? And why is it hyphenated?! In this session, we’ll demystify service-learning by discussing its grounding theories and evolution, its benefits and challenges, as well as experiences of Durham Tech faculty who have incorporated this teaching and learning method into their classes. We’ll also discuss Durham Tech’s service-learning models, the transcript notation, and available support to guide you through the process of selecting community partners and designing assignments. At the end of this TLC session, you’ll have a more comprehensive understanding of service-learning’s goals and applications, ideas for how to use it in your classroom, and several helpful resources to assist you in incorporating this dynamic method into your courses.

With the advent of online education in foreign languages, it has become even more necessary to create and offer opportunities for students to develop and practice their oral as well as their aural skills. This SoTL project set out to find more opportunities to allow students in the online language class to practice and use their developing oral skills. The goal was to see marked improvement in student performance and attitudes toward speaking activities. Lisa will share her SoTL process, research and findings during the presentation. She will show how she implemented various speaking activities in her online French class with the goal of increasing student performance in speaking tasks.
