Scholars Day: April 10, 2013

The Importance of Service Learning and or Experiential Learning in Social Work: Camp Abilities

Within many professions the skills learned in a classroom setting are more than sufficient to be successful when entering the workforce. This presentation will argue that for a social work student, service learning is just as important. For Scholars Day we will present on the importance of service learning and the presenters experiences during their time working at Camp Abilities. Camp Abilities is a youth camp for children with visual impairments hosted annually on the Brockport campus. Using the current literature on service learning, the presentation will present our analysis of our experience of having a course that includes both traditional in class learning with a week-long hands on experience of working with children who are deaf, blind, and or deaf and blind.

Heather Klotzbach (Undergraduate Student)
