The study and application of service learning as a pedagogy has become widespread. Service-Learning in Physical Education and Other Related Professions: A Global Perspective shows students how faculty in physical education and other related professions have designed, implemented, assessed and conducted action research involving service-learning as a teaching and learning method, both nationally and internationally. The text is broken down into three parts: Part I discusses what service-learning is and what parameters have been explored and the integration of standards to ensure high-quality service-learning. Part II focuses on the pedagogical frameworks which service-learning thrives in and explores how the model specifically meets national standards and best practices. It also explores the emerging role of research. Part III is devoted to a variety of programs from across the globe that utilize service-learning in their pedagogical framework and provides the nuts and bolts of what they have done and how they have accomplished it. Written by experts in the field with direct experience in designing and applying service-learning, this book provides not only a theoretical base for implementing service-learning into courses but also gives specific examples of successful projects that both students and educators will find challenging. Teachers, coaches, students and administrators will all find valuable resources within this text.
