97660100480850LThe Journal of Planning Education and Research shares Associate Professor of Wright State University, Mary Wenning’s review of New Village Press publication, Service-Learning in Design and Planning: Educating at the Boundaries.

Below is a short excerpt, the full online version can be viewed here.

“The editors and contributors raise the call for a renewed commitment to transformative, cross-disciplinary service learning in design and planning. To answer that call, design and planning educators must adopt new ways of thinking about teaching, learning, and working across disciplines. Educators who take up the call will find this edited series to be a useful resource. The primary focus of the book is service learning in design, but many of the lessons learned from the case studies are universal to service learning pedagogy.”
