In recent years, the normative approach to teaching negotiation (i.e., using a combination of lectures, case discussions, and simulation exercises) has been under scrutiny. Calls for change stem from the need to increase the “real-world” applicability of our courses. The author presents service-learning as a potential pedagogical solution. In doing so, she addresses the fit between service-learning and recent calls for change in teaching negotiation; discusses issues related to student learning, course design, and faculty member involvement; and provides sample reflections from past service-learning negotiation students.
