Service-Learning Courses

At the core of Otterbein's service-learning courses is the principle that transformational learning is a central purpose of education. There may be no more innovative learning model than a pedagogy that actually applies course objectives, has students experience community service, and prepares students for a lifetime of community participation.  The times we live in and the evolution of experiential pedagogy do not permit us to settle for a lesser educational purpose when service-learning is appropriate to the goals of a course.  Our students who participate in service-learning courses emerge from these experiences dedicated to a larger social purpose.
