n Acta Academica - Research, monitoring and evaluation in service learning : the distinct characteristics of research into service learning

Supplement 3
  • ISSN : 0587-2405


This article argues that research, monitoring and evaluation in service learning cannot be placed on one conceptual level. Research is about the creation of new knowledge. Monitoring and evaluation deal with, amongst other things, quality control and the development of a process. Although research, monitoring and evaluation can complement each other, they cannot be treated as one conceptual activity, since their aims and objectives differ. The problem statement is that the meaning of research, monitoring and evaluation will be lost if they are all treated on the same conceptual level. The aims of this article are to identify the difference between research, monitoring and evaluation in service learning as well as to identify a framework for research into service learning. End

<b>Navorsing, monitering en evaluering in diensleer : die onderskeidende eienskappe van navorsing in diensleer</b> <br>Hierdie artikel argumenteer dat navorsing, monitering en evaluering in diensleer nie op een konseptuele vlak geplaas kan word nie. Navorsing gaan oor die skep van nuwe kennis. Monitering en evaluering handel oor kwaliteitskontrole en die verloop van 'n proses. Hoewel hierdie aktiwiteite mekaar kan aanvul, kan dit nie as een konseptuele aktiwiteit hanteer word nie omdat die oogmerke en doelwitte verskillend is. Die probleemstelling is dat die betekenisvolle onderskeid in die doelstellings van navorsing, monitering en evaluering verlore gaan indien hierdie aktiwiteite gesamentlik op dieselfde konseptuele vlak hanteer word. Die doelwitte van die artikel is om die onderskeid tussen hierdie begrippe in diensleer te verstaan en om 'n raamwerk vir navorsing in diensleer daar te stel. End
