"A course based,

credit bearing

institutional educational experience in which students participate in organized service that
meets community needs
, and
reflect
on the service to gain further
understanding
of course content, a broader appreciation of the discipline, and an enhanced sense of civic or social responsibility." (Bringle & Hatcher, 1996)
Academic Community Service Learning has the following characteristics

•Linked to course content and learning outcomes
Addresses community needs
•Community Experience (unpaid)
•Reflection Assignments, & Final Report
Academic Community Service Learning
Unpaid
- part of the program
Students receive
course credit
Examples found in
professional

programs
**

Nursing, Law, Social Work, Education
** Courses with in-course EE &/or with Community Learning activities exist alongside placements.
Placements
Internships
Internships are supervised experiences in which a student has
documented intentional learning goals
that are agreed by the employer, the faculty supervisor and the student.

Paid, zero credit
&
optional
to the program

Internships are generally 4-5 days a week and can last 4, 8, 12,or 16 months in duration.

Learning is assessed via the student creating an
end of term work term report,
which is reviewed by the faculty supervisor, and the employer's evaluation of the student.

Students receive a
transcript notation
for credit hours - typically a Pass/Fail is assigned by a faculty supervisor.
Characteristics of Co-operative Education Programs:

Alternate periods of academic study with periods of work experience

the co-operative student is engaged in
productive work
rather than merely observing;

the co-operative student receives
remuneration
for the work performed;

the co-operative student's progress on the
job is monitored
by the co-operative
educational institution;

the co-operative student's
performance on the job is supervised
and evaluated by the student's
co-operative employer;

the time spent in periods of work experience must be at least thirty per cent of the time spent in academic study.

lasts for 4, 8, 12 or 16 months.

What is your personal motivation/philosophy for using EE:

Why Do it?
Nursing Course: Community as Partner

Report on "Healthy Community" Assessment for the Town of Innisfil.

Video created by students in the course documenting and disseminating their work
Why would students be motivated to take an EE course?
Generally the reflections are generated through a
concrete experience
where:
the students are
actively engaged
and the reflection activity contributes to new knowledge
“Reflection is an
active
, persistent and careful consideration of any belief or assumption, their origins, and their unintended effect" (Dewey, 1933)
Short in-class activities (1 to 5 min)
Jotting down Words
Weekly discussion question

Intermediate length in-class Activities (5 to 30 mins)
Current literature -- relate it to concrete/own experience (e.g., newspaper, journal articles)
Wall writings -- view others comments

Longer in-class activities (<30 mins)
Timeline
Interviews
Artistic creation (e.g. film, play or skit)

Abstract conceptualization
represents a
summation
of what of has been learned from the experience and the reflections upon that experience. It can be seen as a
reflection on many reflections
or a "meta-reflection". These reflections are combined with experiences and
contextualized by theoretical concepts
. In other words, “abstract conceptualization” refers to the phase where the student combines new realizations with the material that is being learned.

Abstract conceptualization includes:
• Meta-reflection (reflections on previous reflection exercises/ assignments)
• Theories that relate to the concrete experience
• Course content
• Relevant scholarly literature
Active experimentation
refers to
planning
how theories and/or
ideas
can be
used or tested
in future experiences

This may include
linking past
knowledge with
current learning
and
putting this into practice.


Community partners
are
invited into the classroom
to present pre-defined problems, questions or areas of research interest, which will become a project.


Students work as ‘consultants’
with the problems/issues provided by the community partners, by applying their developing knowledge and skills.

Students
also
reflect
on how the experience relates to or
informs their learning.

Through completing the project, students make recommendations or
provide solutions
to the community partner.


Experiential education (EE) is a pedagogical approach that blends
theory
and
coursework
with practical,
concrete experience
. Simply put, within the context of the learning objectives of a course or a program, EE allows students to acquire 'real life' experience and to
reflect
upon this experience such that they
deepen their understanding
of the theory.

Placements
Internships
Co-op
Students are given the opportunity to work on a
research project
that is part of a course and has been
co-created
and developed through the
collaboration of a community partner
and a researcher (e.g., course director).




In contrast to traditional research on the community, CBR has the characteristic of being community situated.

It is:
practically
relevant
to the community;
collaborative
and
action oriented
