Prospects for Integrating Service Learning into Short-Term International Study

Donna M. Daly, Suzanne Baker, Stephen J. Williams

Abstract


In an era of significant social, political, and economic globalization, it is crucial for health and human services
educators to adopt a more hands on international view vis-à-vis student education. This article presents
information that will assist educators in extending domestic service learning concepts and activities into the
undergraduate international study arena. The authors also introduce a research framework for further data
collection and analysis. Finally, the article shares lessons learned and presents a continuum that features five
milestones, institutional support, faculty buy-in, agency partnership, student engagement, and pre-post
assessment that contribute to the successful incorporation of service learning activities.
