Service-learning (SL) is a relatively new pedagogical approach to facilitate student learning at the university level. In SL, students enrolled in an academic course provide a needed service to a community partner. Through guided reflection, students link classroom-based, theoretical knowledge with clinical applications. Students' active engagement in learning facilitates thinking critically, questioning assumptions, considering varying perspectives, and appreciating the civic purpose of their profession. This article describes three SL applications, in dysphagia, educational audiology, and augmentative and alternative communication. We explain the rationale for each, along with ways in which to measure the effects of SL on student learning.
