This session will be a roundtable discussion on the topic of service learning. The session will begin with a brief presentation by the authors in which a videotaped anthology of one service learning project (Building a Habitat House) will be shown and a number of other service learning projects (i.e. Paint Your Heart Out) will be discussed. The presentation will be followed by an open discussion of how and when service learning can best be utilized. We encourage others who are using service learning to share their ideas and suggestions with the group.
