Suzanne’s Definition! • Opportunity for students to learn outside the classroom • Faculty member assigns it • Student chooses a site • Student sets learning objectives with the faculty member and site supervisor • Complete the assigned hours of service – usually 20 or more hours • Return to the classroom to do a presentation or turn in a written reflection paper
