Implement Service-Learning in Your Course
After completing the Service-Learning training, you may formally propose a Service-Learning Course for designation with the SVL tag in the course catalog. The Office of Experiential Learning will guide you throughout the entire proposal process.
Designating your course as ‘Service-Learning’ enables students to seek out and enroll in these opportunities and share this information through their transcripts. You will also have the luxury of knowing that all of your students are aware of your required community engagement project in advance. Finally, course designation increases the visibility of ACC’s Service-Learning Program and visually represents the institution’s commitment to this high impact practice.
Our office is at your service!
When your Service-Learning Course Proposal is approved by the Service-Learning Program Coordinator and your discipline’s Department Chair, you will have the assistance of the Office of Experiential Learning in designating your course with the SVL tag and implementing your project in your course. Courses with the SVL designation will receive assistance throughout the semester in the following areas:
- Providing a timeline for effective service-learning planning;
- Finding community partners based on your project’s learning objectives;
- Offering on-campus and virtual service opportunities;
- Assisting your students in emergency service placement and helping all parties communicate effectively;
- Providing you with the necessary forms;
- Orienting your students to equitable community-engaged service-learning;
- Offering post-service surveys and course data;
- And helping troubleshoot and gather course data along the way!
