This workshop will cover the basic steps and design principles to design, develop, and implement a service learning project or program within a basic education or higher education setting. This workshop will begin with a brief overview of most salient current research, characteristics, and benefits of service learning. Guided by the workshop facilitator, the participants will then have the opportunity to apply this foundation knowledge by working in small groups to step through the initial steps of the planning process for designing a service learning project or program.
