Abstract: Abstract: Service-Learning courses with students creating projects for both external and internal clients continue to provide a valuable and effective student set of experiences. This paper reflects on some of the best practices from a corporate/community video production course in its ninth year with over fifty projects completed. From pre-semester planning, to student and client management, through to completion and delivery of final product, the author uses real-world examples to show effective methods for teaching courses based on a Service-Learning model using student-produced client-based projects as the primary learning experience.
