Abstract

<b>Diensleer in Suid-Afrika : lesse geleer uit sistematiese evaluering</b> <br>Hierdie artikel is gebaseer op 'n evalueringsverslag wat geskryf is vir JET Education Services en dek twee jaar van 'n evalueringstudie van diensleerkursusse (of -modules) aan vyf hoëronderwysinstellings in Suid-Afrika. Die artikel ondersoek verskeie diensleermodelle asook die kritieke omstandighede vir doeltreffende konseptualisering en lewering van 'n diensleerkursus binne 'n akademiese program. Dit ondersoek ook sommige van die sleutelfaktore wat ter sprake is by die institusionalisering van diensleer sodat hierdie vorm van gemeenskapsbetrokkenheid 'n volhoubare en lewensvatbare element van normale akademiese aanbiedinge van Suid-Afrikaanse hoëronderwysinstellings kan word.

This article is based on an evaluation report written for JET Education Services and covers a two-year period of an evaluation study of service learning courses (or modules) at five higher education institutions in South Africa. The article explores various models of service learning and considers the critical conditions for effective conceptualisation and delivery of a service learning course within an academic course. It also examines some of the key factors involved in the institutionalisation of service learning so that this form of community engagement can become a sustained and viable element of the normal academic offerings of South African higher education institutions.
