Fostering student credibility through sustainable engagement initiatives: The Service-, Operative-, and Lecture-Learning (SOLL) Model
AbstractMulti-disciplinary programs are growing, and serve an integral role in fostering knowledge transfer among disciplines and the community. Despite their importance, relatively little has been written on how to foster success in multi-disciplinary higher education engagement initiatives, particularly in ways that encompass service-learning. The current work highlights unique multi-disciplinary needs for knowledge transfer, critical and creative thinking, and building bridges between academia and practice. A sustainable, integrative framework that encompasses lecture, operative, and service-learning is presented to meet such multi-disciplinary needs. The current work additionally discusses two applications of this model in graduate and undergraduate consumer science engagement initiatives.
