Service Learning

Hello there.

Greetings, it is a pleasure to see that you have such great interest in Service Learning. We have a similar program that we are engaged in in Makerere University Agricultural Research Institute Kabanyolo(MUARIK), Uganda. We hope to have a planning workshop where we shall brainstorm on the curriculum and also how we can work with students to produce free learning content on the wikieducator. We have also a project in the wikieducator called Searvice Learning and we would wish to get help in how to develop this service learning curriculum that we hope to use at MUARIK, you could be of much help. I hope to hear from you.

Thank you,

Sorry James - I just saw your note now.

Happy New Year!

It would be wonderful to work with you. Let's discuss this via email ( or in the WikiEducator discussion group where others can participate or follow as they wish.

Best, ..Valerie

Comments on student guidelines

  • Under 'General Guidelines'

Keep a Time Log - track your hours worked with dates and times, functions performed AND Achievements / Results (this should get them thinking in terms of results or outputs)

  • Also, somewhere at the end of the projects you should have an evaluation ~ for reporting purposes, but also to improve the program, and further engage the students. This evaluation would need to be developed ~ perhaps you can do so, on the wiki ~ we did so, and then turned it into a regular Survey Monkey survey.
  • CSA Recognition page, or emblem ~ you can get that for general CSA, and specifically with WikiEducator.

Also projects through WikiEducator ~ there are many more than meet the eye...if there is significant demand, we can have the students fill out a short questionnaire, and that can be routed to the Community Service Volunteer, to suggest a match. ...from someone who knows many of the things and needs happening in the Community...

WE can also develop its Wishlist....and have a feed that goes into that area that you have on your site/ page. How many students are we talking about here, over what period of time?

Also, if you can insert a direct link to wikieducator - - so that students may take a look at it, and the actual projects page....WE can help facilitate the connections too...

  • I like the AND Achievements / Results
  • The evaluation is "quiz" within the Moodle course, but I can place a copy on a linked page
  • CSA - what's this?
  • It would be nice to grow to have to direct volunteer traffic
  • My students do just six hours of community service learning work over 1-2 weeks as it is currently defined
  • I'm taking some small steps to get started. While it would be nice to have students get the big picture on WE, this is pretty confusing as it is. When all projects are within WE, then we can really spend time on promoting the WE work.
