The course is very helpful to those who will take it. I suggest adding a more comprehensive introduction to Service-Learning since it is not yet common especially in Asian countries.
I loved this way of working, especially with young students, love that they have all control of it. the course was easy and very understandable. it has great material available.
This course outlined and provided great examples of the easy to follow Roots & Shoots process for engaging youth in helping identify and execute true service learning projects!
This is a great course for people who want to make a difference in their communities and around the world. It was well-designed and flexible to my schedule.
