Overview

International Service Learning (ISL) borrows from the domains of service learning, study abroad, and international education to create a new pedagogy that adds new and unique value from this combination. It is a high-impact pedagogy with the potential to improve students' academic attainment, contribute to their personal growth, and develop global civic outcomes.

This volume offers a pioneering analysis, and understanding, of why and under what conditions ISL is an effective pedagogy, and asks the critical questions that all practitioners want to address as they consider their objectives and how they can measure the outcomes of their courses.

Focusing on conducting research on ISL, which includes developing and evaluating hypotheses about ISL outcomes, and measuring its impact on students, faculty, and communities, this book argues that rigorous research is essential to improving the quality of ISL's implementation and delivery, and to providing the evidence that will lead to wider support and adoption by the academy, funders, and partners.
