Service through Learning: Ethics, Partnerships, and Best Practices

Global Learning Faculty Conversation: Service through Learning: Ethics, Partnerships, and Best Practices

Date, Time, Location: Tuesday, August 25, 2015 • 2:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m. • Meredith 207

What is an ethical partnership? How can we create ethical partnerships that support communities and the students who serve or train in them? How can students and institutions, through their work and learning paradigms, empower these communities?

This collaborative NAFSA Global Learning Faculty Conversation will feature the editor of Developing Global Health Programming: A Guidebook for Medical and Professional Schools, published by Global Health Education Collaborations Press.

Throughout the conversation, presenters and participants will be able to:

  • Explore questions about ethics related to service learning and how to develop ethical partnerships;
  • Examine how service-learning programs can provide global learning experiences and empower communities;
  • Share experiences and best practices with global service learning in the fields of healthcare and applicable disciplines.


Faculty Conversations are designed for faculty members, academic leaders, researchers, and international educators interested in student learning outcomes and the educational experiences—curricular and cocurricular—created to help students gain and practice global knowledge, skills, and perspectives.
