How do we understand SL? •  Pedagogy  that  integrates   community  service  in  the  learning   and  development  of  contents,   competencies  and  values  with  the   aid  of  reflecLon  tools.          The  service  is  contextualised,  so   that  it  improves  the  student’s   immediate  context  and  helps  to   transform  social  reality      (Mar;nez  2010;  Puig  2009;  Tapia   2010,  among  others)   © 2016. McHenry County College
