This session will discuss the value of short-term international service trips when nurtured by local community engagement. We'll explore topics such as developing community partnerships, fostering dialogue among communities, students as partners, and short-term international service-learning expectations. Co-facilitators will share stories of collaborative engagement across borders and lead a conversation about challenges encountered in sustaining partnerships, ensuring the long-lasting impact of international service-learning, and engaging students in every step of the process. The audience will reflect on how international-local connections can be established within their area of interest and how service-learning could contribute to creating a more vibrant global pedagogical framework.
