The new proposal for service learning courses (SL) is being considered by a service learning committee at the university level. If the proposal is expected to be consistent with the achievements of In-Service Learning (SL), it is given the name SL. The designation as an SL course requires that the following criteria be met. These elements must be dealt with in writing as part of the SL qualification programme proposal and should be clearly included in the proposed programme: reminder: for SAFECLIP or SPLIP insurance to cover students, there must be a fully signed agreement; Make sure an agreement is executed before the service learning experience begins. In addition to signing the agreement, CPM is involved whenever a learning activities website requests changes to our standard model or wants to use its own agreement model. CPM may cooperate with risk management and/or General Counsel for any requested changes to the legal conditions and with the (s) department (s) campus (s) for any requested changes to the terms and conditions. Once a mutual agreement was reached, ALS returned to (s) department (s) campus (s) to complete the electronic routing process. Service learning courses include essential science skills and learning that ensure students have the ability to explain course content while serving the community and reflect on the links between structured formalized learning and their experience in this area. “The essential requirements for service learning are that the service is linked to the work of the courses and that students establish, through critical reflection, the links between their service experiences and abstract concepts of course work. Other requirements are that course work be evaluated (but not the service itself) and that the service meets the needs of the Community” (Deeley, 2010, p.
43). The university offers, if necessary, general and professional liability insurance for apprenticeships and service internships, provided there is a written agreement between the university and the host organization. For more information on insurance coverage under the SafeCLIP and SPLIP programs, visit university insurance programs. Coverage of professional liability may also be granted for international learning in the service sector, subject to a review by insurance law. The service learning involves the active participation of students in voluntary and collaborative service experiences that contribute to the long-term development of the community and civic engagement. Service learning projects are strongly linked to course content and enrich student training by acquiring professional skills in a practical (or applied) environment while meeting the needs of partner institutions.
