faculty teams of three to five participants who intended on crafting
high quality service-learning curriculum to infuse into their teacher
preparation programs in the 2001-2002 academic year. Teams were

Connections: Infusing Service Learning Into Teacher Preparation
A Service-Learning Institute for Faculty of the California State
October 12-13, 2000, Los Angeles, CA
This gathering of CSU education faculty offered the opportunity
to learn more about service learning, exchange ideas with colleagues,
identify the myriad of resources available, examine concrete service-learning
tools and models, and build a plan to infuse service learning into
teacher education. During the institute, we considered:
- How can the practices and methodologies of service learning
offer unique opportunities for pre-service teachers now and benefit
their students once they have entered the profession formally?
- What can be learned from our colleagues who bring experience
and knowledge from the field?
- With the research, resources and support systems provided,
what are the steps our departments can take to integrate service
learning into our teaching practices?
