Indiana Campus Compact has produced a series of “Service Learning Tip Sheets,” one of which deals with several types of reflection. Though there is some overlap with the Virginia Tech material, the information is different and useful enough to warrant inclusion here. The following is contributed by Julie Hatcher, Center for Public Service and Leadership, IUPUI and Randall Osborne, Psychology, Indiana University East.

Reflection: Connecting Service to Academic Learning

Personal Journals are easy to assign, yet difficult to grade; some argue that this means of personal reflection should not be graded at all. Journals provide a way for students to express thoughts and feelings about the service experience throughout the semester and, with guidance, journals can link personal learning with course content.
