Description

Service-Learning was integrated into a core course in the Forest Management Curriculum within the Department of Forestry at North Carolina State University: Forest Measurements, Modeling, and Inventory. The objective of the service-learning component of the course was to have the students research, design, implement, analyze, report, and reflect on the application of forest inventory and modeling techniques in conjunction with a service-learning community partner. The ‘real-world’ situations that the students encountered integrated the core course concepts and encouraged active learning, teamwork, and critical thinking.
