Academic Service Learning (ASL), also referred to as service learning, is an instructional method which “utilizes community service to help students gain a deeper understanding of course content, acquire new knowledge and engage in civic activity (Stacey, Rice, & Langer, 2001). ASL makes use of community environments in which there are opportunities for students to have hands-on learning experiences with situations, people, or conditions that the students are learning about in a classroom. By having direct experience with the concepts being introduced in the classroom, students are able to develop better comprehension and skills than they would in classroom learning alone (Zlotkowski, 2001).
