The nuts and bolts of a service-learning programme

  • HR Hay

Abstract

Particularly after 1994 higher education in South Africa has been called to renew its commitment towards socio-economic realities. In moving away from an élitist system to a more accessible and representative system, the reconfigured system will increasingly have to respond to the challenges that confront South African communities. Service-learning, if applied correctly, could be a powerful means through which higher education institutions can meet the expected goals for student learning and societal development while making contributions to addressing unmet community, national and global needs.
