1. Griswold, Ryan MacLelland 1973-. A Mixed Method Study to Measure Outcomes from Co-Curricular Service-Learning Experiences.

Degree: Educational Psychology, Department of, 2013, University of Houston

This study focused on the outcomes achieved by students participating in a co-curricular service-learning experience, specifically alternative spring break trips. Both curricular and co-curricular service learning are part of a larger field of experiential learning, which has been found to have positive influences on student learning and development. While learning outcomes for curricular service learning have been identified in numerous empirical studies, a literature review identifies a gap in research related to learning outcomes from co-curricular service learning programs. The goal of this study was to examine the outcomes achieved by participants using the Alternative Break Participant Survey (ABPS). This instrument examines three constructs relevant to the learning achieved through participation in co-curricular service-learning experiences: faith, knowledge, and commitment. Guiding this inquiry were the following research questions: 1. What influence do gender, semester standing, prior program involvement, and past level of service involvement have on the learning outcomes related to faith, knowledge, and commitment achieved by alternative spring break program participants through the pre-trip education component of the experience? 2. What influence do gender, semester standing, prior program involvement, and past level of service involvement have on the learning outcomes related to faith, knowledge, and commitment achieved by alternative spring break program participants through the trip-based service, education, and reflection components of the experience? 3. What influence do gender, semester standing, prior program involvement, and past level of service involvement have on the learning outcomes related to faith, knowledge, and commitment achieved by alternative spring break program participants through the entire experience (both pre-trip education and trip-based service, education, and reflection components)? 4. What, if any, additional learning outcomes not currently measured by the ABPS may be achieved by alternative spring break program participants? This study utilized archival data collected part of an institutional program evaluation process. Data were collected both through on-line surveys with a sample of undergraduate students who had applied to participate in an alternative break program (N = 116) and through a series of three focus group interviews (N = 5, 6, and 5). Multivariate analyses of variance (MANOVA) were utilized to answer each of the first three research questions. Qualitative data from focus group interviews were examined through the use of NVivo in order to answer the fourth research question and provide additional support for questions one through three. Significant findings in the MANOVA tests for the pre-trip component of the program suggested that students’ faith development is influenced by their past involvement in similar programs (F (3, 28) = 3.56; Pillai's Trace = .28), as well as by interactions between gender and prior level of service involvement (F (6, 58) =… Advisors/Committee Members: Horn, Catherine (advisor), Olenchak, F.

2. Bienvenu, Beau. Social and cultural learning experiences of college students who participate in service learning trips, The.

Degree: PhD, Education, 2007, Colorado State University

To make a service learning trip an effective learning experience, it is important to determine what, if anything, students are learning as a result of the experience. The purpose of this phenomenological study is to contribute to the understanding of the lived social and cultural learning experiences for college students who participate in service learning trips.The qualitative research method, with its focus on a social phenomenon and the meaning this phenomenon has to the people who participate in it, was used to study the lived experience of undergraduate college students participating in service learning experiences. This study used the phenomenological research methodology, with its focus on describing the essences of the lived experience. The specific research approach was hermeneutical phenomenology because of the interpretative, rather than strictly descriptive, nature of this methodology (van Manen, 1990). In this study, interpretation was used when analyzing the data, using Kolb's Theory of Experiential Learning as the theoretical framework. The primary method of data collection for this research study was through semi-structured interviews with eight participants who had participated in at least one service learning trip. Three major themes were revealed as a result of these interviews: Social Learning Experiences, Cultural Learning Experiences, and Self-Learning. The sub-themes that emerged for Social Learning Experiences were Bonding and Developing Leadership Skills. The sub-themes that emerged for Cultural Learning Experiences were Reintegration Issues, Differences between Participants and Those Served and Overcoming Differences. The sub-themes that emerged for Self-Learning were Changes in Perceptions of Others and Awareness of Privilege.A number of recommendations for practice came out of this study. These recommendations, which could be potentially useful to Student Affairs Personnel interested in implementing service learning trips,included ensuring that there is a formal reflection component in service learning trips, ensuring that service learning trip participants have some kind of responsibility around coming up with solutions to the problem that they are there to solve, ensuring that participants have ample opportunities to work with the other people involved in the project, including students from other schools, and ensuring that participants have the opportunity to interact with the people they are serving.
