About this product
- DescriptionService learning is an experiential learning pedagogy that enables students to integrate their study of ecomics in the classroom with service activities in their communities. It can enhance both ecomic literacy and the quality of our communities by helping to make ecomics more accessible to an increasingly diverse student body, increasing student citizenship skills, and improving the relationship between colleges and universities and their communities.The two parts of this volume provide a theoretical basis for service learning and offer lessons gleaned from applying it in the classroom. The theoretical chapters outline the learning theory and models of service learning as they can be applied in ecomics. Service learning is introduced here as a technique that teaches students to do ecomics. Also included are specific models of service learning and an overview of assessment issues. The applications chapters detail various examples of using service to enhance learning. These range from using a single service experience in a class to courses that use service experiences as the focus and context for learning ecomics. Course topics cover environmental and natural resources, statistics, ecometrics and research methods, principles and ecomic issues, labor, the ecomics of gender, forensic ecomics, and development ecomics. Each application provides details regarding the institutional environment in which it was implemented, type of course, enrollment, and process through which student learning was enhanced. Handouts and abbreviated syllabi are included.Ecomics educators have a stake in improving their students' long-term ecomic literacy. Service learning offers significant benefits beyond those offered by pedagogies traditionally found in ecomics classrooms and should be considered as a teaching strategy by ecomics professors everywhere.Kim Marie McGoldrick is Associate Professor of Ecomics, University of Richmond. Andrea L. Ziegert is Associate Professor of Ecomics, Denison University.
