Having students involved with such service-learning web projects activities parallel my teaching philosophy as “you have to be able to practice what you teach”. This session will describe the community outreach service-learning web projects where I have collaborated and coordinated with several local, regional and international non-profit organizations and small businesses to connect students in my Web Design I Programming class with an actual business client as a requirement of the final project. These outreach activities allowed my students to either create and/or modify a web site. My students learn to practice problem-solving, and critical thinking techniques for lifelong learning skills during the process of completing the service-learning web project with clients. This experience has become a win-win for the organizations involved, Thompson Rivers University (TRU), TRU Computing Science (CS) department and more importantly students in my classes since 2003.
