Faculty & Students

Faculty members whose service-learning courses include direct service are asked to consider alternative types of service-learning:

  • Many service-learning courses include an indirect, research-based, or advocacy service-learning project. If your course includes direct service, consider ways in which students might engage in these other types of service-learning. Examples include

    • Research, assessment, or evaluation requested by a partner organization

    • Creating deliverables for a partner organization, such as digital media or social media content, print materials, or other information-sharing products

    • Creating virtual educational materials such as webinars or streaming a presentation or performance

  • Explore ways in which direct service could be offered virtually, such as offering services via video conferencing platforms or engaging in virtual service opportunities (examples and resources for finding virtual service opportunities are currently available here.

  • Consider opportunities to reflect on COVID-19, global health, the impact of pandemics on communities, and ways that community members can support one another while (and by) remaining socially distant.
