Course-Based Service Learning (CBSL) is an experiential learning approach which links community-based experience with course content. CBSL involves a range of activities intended to benefit the service provider (the student) and the recipient (the community partner), while maintaining a focus on learning.
The Community of Practice (CoP) approach offers a framework for creating learning communities that engage in sustained conversations focused on enhancing their professional practice.
