Summary

There are substantial opportunities for service-learning in the computer and information sciences. To date, there has not been a comprehensive framework developed to provide a structure for understanding the breadth and depth of service-learning opportunities in the computer and information sciences. This framework delineates the range of options and opportunities for service-learning in the computer and information sciences disciplines. Its aim is to facilitate and broaden the practice of service-learning in the computer and information sciences among the academic and nonprofit organization communities by clarifying the options and choices open to stakeholders in these opportunities. This chapter proposes a three-dimensional framework for service-learning opportunities in the computer and information sciences. The first dimension defines the types of projects to be performed in a service-learning engagement. The second dimension defines the range of to be performed in a service-learning project. The third dimension defines the mode of performing the service-learning project.
