Why Service Learning at UniK?
The process of institutionalizing Service Learning (SL) is slowly beginning to take shape at the University of Kisubi (UniK). SL as a novel pedagogy for the 21st century philosophy of education underscores the fact that learning no longer takes place exclusively in the four walls of the classroom. At UniK, SL consists in the hands-on approach to teaching and learning which underpinned its educational philosophy since its very inception, to foster active learning among the students through integral, formative and participatory educational experiences that link what the student learns to his or her real-life situations. This way, SL as a pedagogy inculcates in the students the values and attitudes that surpass and outlive those they can ever acquire in the controlled learning environment within the classroom setting.
