Service-learning is defined as “a form of experiential education in which students engage in activities that address human and community needs, together with structured opportunities for reflection to achieve desired learning outcomes. “ (Jacoby 1996) Furco (1996) differentiates it from other types of experiential learning “by their intention to equally benefit the provider and the recipient of the service as well as to ensure equal focus on both the service being provided and the learning that is occurring. Lim and Babar (2016) highlighted the importance of service learning in education of health professionals. They recognised this as an integral tool for students; with an opportunity for inter professional learning, experiential learning, developing skills at managing complexity and understanding the local community better. Allied organisations also benefited, with the opportunity to collaborate and network with academic institutions. What is Service Learning?

Why is this Conference Important?

This conference is an opportunity for those involved in healthcare education to understand the potential for service learning to become an integral part of their programme, and the methods by which to make it a success. It is also an opportunity to learn from experts in the field, and to network with key partners.
