There is an increasing proliferation of servicelearning courses in colleges and universities in the U.S. and internationally, and research in the field has seen significant growth in diverse geographic areas in the past decade. Membership organizations now exist to convene scholars and practitioners across the globe. Chapters in this volume are based on presentations given at the 2010 annual conference of the International Association for Research on Service Learning and Community Engagement held in Indianapolis, IN. The conference theme “International Perspectives: Crossing Boundaries through Research” was chosen to highlight ways in which research crosses all kinds of boundaries: disciplinary boundaries, cultural boundaries, and national boundaries. Although servicelearning is valued as an active learning strategy across the globe, little is known about the ways that servicelearning is similar or different in varied contexts. Understanding servicelearning and community engagement from crosscultural and crossdisciplinary perspectives will improve both research and practice. Together, these chapters represent the diversity, complexity, and creativity evident by scholars and practitioners in this field of study.

This fifth book in the Advances in Service-Learning Research series continues to expand the discussion of service-learning research and practice. The chapters were selected through a refereed, blind-review process from papers presented at the 4th Annual International K-H Service-Learning Research Conference held October 2004 in Greenville, South Carolina. The chapters focus on topics that address a variety of issues in higher education and teacher education and are organized into four sections. This volume in the series presents new paradigms that can lead practitioners to create more powerful experiences, and lead researchers to a better understanding of the relationships between service-learning, participants, context, and outcomes. If implemented, the models in this volume can do much to help us better understand the essence of service-learning and add to its value to education and the development of engaged citizens.

In this volume in the IAP series on Advances in ServiceLearning Research, top researchers present recent work studying aspects of program development, student and community outcomes, and future research directions in the field of servicelearning and community engagement. These chapters, selected through a rigorous peer review process, are based on presentations made at the annual meeting of the International Research Conference on ServiceLearning and Community Engagement, held in October, 2008, in New Orleans. This volume features efforts in research and practice to support and expand servicelearning and engaged scholarship in both K12 and higher education. Models of effective partnerships between institutions of higher education and their community partners are developed in chapters looking at relationships between campus and community in terms of partnership identity or in terms of shared understanding by campus and community partners. Outcomes for K12 and college students engaged in service learning are the focus of several studies. The impact of highquality servicelearning on K12 student achievement and schoolrelated behaviors is described. Racial identity theory provides a useful frame for understanding developing student conceptualizations, while another chapter emphasizes aspects of selfexploration and relationship building as bases for gains in student attitudes and skills. In a final section, chapters deal with servicelearning and community engagement as a coherent research field with a distinct identity, reviewing current work and proposing directions for future research.

When considering inequality, one goal for educators is to enhance critical engagement to allow learners an opportunity to participate in an inquiry process that advances democracy. Service?learning pedagogy offers an opportunity to advance engaged?learning opportunities within higher education. This is particularly important given the power dynamics that are endemic within conversations about education, including the conversations around the Common Core, charter schools, and the privatization of education. Critical inquiry is central to the ethos of service?learning pedagogy, a pedagogy that is built upon community partner participation and active reflection. Within higher education, service?learning offers an important opportunity to enhance practice within the community, allowing students to engage stakeholders and youth which is particularly important given the dramatic inequalities that are endemic in today’s society.

This eighth volume in the Advances in ServiceLearning Research series includes eight essays selected from manuscripts submitted by participants in the seventh annual conference of the International Association of Research in ServiceLearning and Community Engagement, held in Tampa, Florida, in October, 2007. The volume builds upon the theme of that conference: "Sustainability and Scholarship: Research and the K20 Continuum," bringing together the work of scholars from K12 and higher education to argue for the connection between rigorous and purposeful research and sustainable servicelearning and civic engagement. Articles range from models for programlevel assessment to examples of significant fieldbased research projects to approaches to advance disciplinebased sustainable impacts to connections between civic education and sustainable communities. Voices of community partners, students, faculty members, administrators, and disciplinebased organizations are part of the conversation, and each of the essays raises important challenges for future research that can help to shape, document, and sustain the important impacts of work in this field.

A volume in Advances in Service-Learning Research Series Editor Virginia M. Jagla, National Louis University; Service-learning is a powerful method of teaching and learning that has been used effectively for more than two decades. Its efficacy has been researched in a variety of ways and this volume continues to expand that research base. In particular, in this volume, Service-Learning Pedagogy: How Does It Measure Up?, we explore three broad areas of service-learning research and practice that reflect broader discussions of the role of pedagogy in today's educational reform efforts: Teacher Education, Crossing Boundaries: Deepening Relationships in Service-Learning and New Paradigms/ Conceptual Frameworks. Many have called for more rigorous methods when researching service-learning pedagogy. That has been the major impetus for this volume. We seek to generate knowledge regarding service-learning pedagogy, while developing theories about it. We surface some elusive affective characteristics of the pedagogy, which we know has the power to produce transformational learning. To this end, the authors who have contributed to this volume effectively add to the growing body of knowledge in the field and help us get closer to understanding the extent to which service-learning does and does not measure up.

The purpose of this series of books is to advance the knowledge in the servicelearning research field. More importantly, this research is to be used to transform the field. This transformation will come from realizing both the history of servicelearning and trying to imagine what the future may look like. The chapters in this book all demonstrate just how far servicelearning research has come. Researchers, practitioners, and students alike have benefited from its dissemination and use the research to improve practice. The research does not simply inform educators how to create a better pedagogy. Rather, it informs a servicelearning practice that can transform both individuals and institutions.
