Research Brief on Service Learning and Deep Learning.

By Tom Hahn and Julie Hatcher, September 2013

Key Highlights:

Data analysis from the 2012 National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) found that students at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) who participated in one or more service learning courses had higher mean scores on all three measures of deep learning.

These include:

  • Higher order learning
  • Integrative Learning
  • Reflective Learning

The results were statistically significant for both freshmen and senior students.

The Center for Service and Learning at IUPUI continues to develop an ongoing series of research briefs that explore the impact of service and learning for IUPUI and its community partners.
