In this course students will explore service-learning pedagogy against the backdrop of Indigenous epistemology. What is service learning? Why is service-learning important in higher education? By considering and privileging Indigenous ways of knowing and belonging, students will investigate how collaboration, cooperation, reflective practice, critical thinking, and caring for one another in our communities and the natural world enhance learning of the whole person: heart, body, mind, and spirit. Students in this course will foster reciprocal relationships between people and place and apply what they learn in the classroom to a real-world situation. Most relevantly, the community partners will have their specific needs met.
