Beyond the Tower: Concepts and Models for Service-learning in Philosophy

This practical guide is intended for faculty and service-learning directors, combining the how-to information and rigorous intellectual framework that teachers seek. What distinguishes this volume is that the contributors are writing for their peers. They discuss how service-learning can be implemented within philosophy and what philosophy contributes to the pedagogy of service-learning. The book offers both theoretical background and practical pedagogical chapters which describe the design, implementation, and outcomes of philosophical service-learning programs, as well as annotated bibliographies, program descriptions and course syllabi.
