Transforming Teaching and Learning at University of Ghana through Community Service-Learning: Listening to the Voices of Students

Michael A. Tagoe


Universities all over the world are undergoing change to improve teaching, learning and service. These changes have been motivated by call for universities to connect more to communities to address their problems. One of the means of ensuring that universities and communities engage mutually in a partnership where students, faculty and community members create and co-create knowledge to find solution to problems is through community service-learning. Although community service-learning has been incorporated in several universities in the United States and lately in South Africa, it is not common amongst universities in Ghana. This paper examines students’ perception towards community service-learning. The study adopted a mixed methods case study approach and collected data using questionnaire and in-depth interview. The findings reveal students’ positive perception towards community service-learning which could eventually have an impact on the University of Ghana’s decision to implement service-learning programmes.
