My Journey In Academic Service Learning

My Journey In Academic Service Learning

my journey in academic service learning teaching is a very rewarding experience for me because I funny hold that I believe that education can have a positive influence on students and enrich their lives i started my photo academic teaching career in 2002 the more teaching years i have the more thinking i have that in a classroom there is not only in content delivery but also i need to help students gain hands-on experience however and also a whale even though the students gain hands-on experience it may not be sufficient enough for them to get a real job in the information technology field after all the hands-on projects are just school projects they are too simplified and sometimes not realistic the students definitely need the empirical experience from real work in real life or situations you it was a fortunate let UW system started promoting the academic service-learning in 2010 so we have an academic service learning center on our campus to help our especially they help in finding clients which is one of the most difficult jobs layer help is greatly appreciated in spring 2011 in the ideas 346 they have based management class 13 students and myself complete you for database projects for 3 nonprofit organizations including nose country independent living superior high school and the Tony gigliotti memorial scholarship fund for uws foundation after the service learning projects were done a couple of the students found this classica access database jobs in our local area immediately I was very pleased with this result you in for 2011 in ITSs 335 web page also in class 20 students and myself completely the five web design projects for five nonprofit organizations including united way early childhood literacy program st. vincent that poor Catholic Charities superior mastic kids r us they kill same forensic nursing home the result in a web sites which the students decide were professional looking some of them went to the clients sites and they took pictures and videos and serious work very hard will receive a very positive feedback from our clients a couple of the students receive a web design jobs after they finish the project once more in focus on 12 I continued the environment of service learning in the idea 335 web page also in class 17 students and myself completed 6 web design projects for 6 nonprofit organizations including the metamorphosis project healthier Douglas County in collision friends of the legwork superior Douglas can’t in senior center project Richard face united methodist church one of the chiro me and email stated that i reviewed what at him for our charity wow it is fantastic it is far beyond what we envisioned thanks for such a great work the coordinator of the academic service learning center as the academic service-learning advisory committee members to view our six professional final productions she also commented there our students went above and beyond to create the video and the websites for our kinds after the semester was over the coordinator bra web design job opportunities for our students this was a great result I enjoy working on service projects and I I will continue to work on them in the future here are some of the my students who provided feedback about service learning I’m not gonna lie when I first heard about the service learning project I was a little hazy about the subject just because I didn’t like the idea of working for free and when you’re making a website for a business there’s a lot of money that goes into that so I don’t know but once I learn more about the company that I was baking the website for it what’s kind of nice their nonprofit organization ends up that the head of the communications department which I’m majoring in is part of the company that I was making the website or so that was nice and not to mention it has some real-world applications to it where you know you’re just gonna be working for a company once he graduates so it’s good practice instead of just doing what they tell you out of the textbook which is probably as far away from real life stuff as he can get but no service learning project it’s good stuff service learning I would say that my experience with service learning was very pleasant my name is Dan Lindbergh and recently I participated in a service learning project through uw-superior the instructor assigned us two different groups and I was assigned to a smaller group it was just another person I and I was fortunate to work with him as a partner we work very well together we really enjoyed the project our assignment was to build a website for a local organization here in the community and it was just a very very good experience working with our client who took our time very serious he really respected the project he was very appreciative of what we had to do and what we had to offer from him it was great we had a couple meetings with him we kicked her own some ideas for the website what we’re going to do and I mean he was very prepared I was just I was impressed working with my partner and with Mike so the final project ended up being a huge success he was very happy and i would i would definitely do the service learning project again if i had the opportunity and I would encourage others to take part in as well for said working on my service learning project that wasn’t sure what real benefits it would have for local businesses that we were helping once we started working with them I realized that even small assistance would help them if not now for sure in the future I believe these service learning projects are positive for the college as it shows the students in what ways what they’re learning can really help real businesses and local businesses small businesses and also large companies and I believe these service learning projects will continue to be helpful and positive as it helps the student realize that what they’re working on can really be used for something and get things done in the real world tell me why the service learning so important to students service learning is important because it gives students or the pupils kind of like a just a better sense of what they’re getting into four courses and careers too so I think working with like project host and networking with like a professional company gives students better understanding of what they what they want to do in feel like a taste for what they’re getting into so I just I think it’s beneficial it was beneficial for me so yeah I liked it you
