The Service Learning Faculty/Facilitator Relationship: Tips for a Successful Relationship

Document Type


Presentation Date


Abstract or Description

Service learning is a long established, effective approach to instruction. Since Faculty Facilitators like the one at Georgia Southern University are relatively new, faculty remain unsure of their roles and how to work effectively with facilitators. Whereas much is known about effects of service learning on students’ learning, little is known about what makes a faculty/facilitator relationship successful. This information is key, as unsuccessful partnerships will result in reduced student learning and poor community relations.
