Experiential Learning & Teaching in Higher Education

Abstract

This case study advances two primary arguments about the relationship between experiential learning and social justice-oriented learning objectives: 1) a first step toward developing strategies and practices that foster justice-related learning outcomes is to partner with organizations that pursue social justice, and 2) effectively teaching social justice in a service-learning experience calls for classroom practices to embody an ethos of social justice in which students sustain a dialogic relationship with the community partner with both parties mutually contributing to the project. I elaborate on best practices for how to achieve clearer assessment of whether students have internalized the goals of a social justice-oriented mission rather than merely producing materials that run parallel to a social justice-related mission.
