Abstract:
Institutions of higher education have a unique opportunity to develop students into individuals who are capable of challenging personal epistemological values and beliefs through the learning environment and educational opportunities. The purpose of this study was to explore the individual perspectives on development and effectiveness of students who engaged in a short-term, required service learning course within the higher educational setting. As institutions develop service learning pedagogies within individual institutional context, consideration should be given to the early development of skills and abilities to foster the self-authorship process. Using the interpretive paradigm of qualitative research, two research questions aided in garnering individual student perspectives. The first question focused on the perceptions student participants in a short-term required service learning course had about their overall experience, including any contributions to their development upon completion of the course. The second research question addressed how participants' perception of the experience influenced their personal epistemology within the context of fostering self-authorship. The perspectives offered by participants provided information for furthering developmental opportunities through service learning. Additionally, it provided perspective for considering the value of facilitating opportunities in a required format in the higher education setting and the perceived value of the opportunity by participants.
