MARTIN-GARCIA, Xus et al. The service learning values ​​map. Alteridad [online]. 2021, vol.16, n.1, pp.12-22. ISSN 1390-8642.

Despite the fact that the specialized bibliography recognizes service learning as a relevant methodology for values education, a sufficiently complete list of the plurality of values that it activates, is not yet available. The objective of this article is to build a reliable map of the values that service learning proposes. In order to achieve it, the levels of learning that overlap in a complex educational practice will be defined and then the values that works at each level of service-learning practices will be determined. To achieve this, a rational reconstruction work based on the reciprocal optimization achieved between a selection of good service-learning experiences and the theory of moral practices and service-learning has been carried out. This methodology has allowed us to establish three simultaneous levels of learning —practice, actions and tasks— as well as a list of the values that crystallize in each of them: a complete map of the variety and richness of values that are put into play in service learning. A result that, in the processes of teacher training, will help to raise awareness of the moral strength of this methodology and to activate it during their professional performance.

Keywords : Service learning; values ​​education; moral practice; values ​​map; teacher training.
