Handbook of Sustainability in Management Education

In Search of a Multidisciplinary, Innovative and Integrated Approach

Edited by Jorge A. Arevalo and Shelley F. Mitchell

This Handbook strives to enhance knowledge and application within sustainability in management education (SiME) across different academic programs, geographic regions and personal/professional contexts. Cross-disciplinary and boundary-spanning, this book focuses on specific themes and is therefore split into four distinct sections: one on theory and practice, one on transformational interventions in business programs, one on the role of external agents and the last on innovative approaches in SiME.

Chapter 19: The influence of temporality on students’ learning processes: Lessons from a service-learning program in Brazil

In Search of a Multidisciplinary, Innovative and Integrated Approach

Luciano Barin Cruz and Marlei Pozzebon


In this chapter, the authors argue for the influential role of temporality in the learning process of students enrolled in service-learning programs. They draw on a long-term service-learning experience conducted by a Canadian business school, in which Canada-based students designed and developed social business projects for a community in the northeastern region of Brazil. They suggest that, depending on the temporal phase of a service-learning project’s development, students experience different outcomes of learning in the areas of reality, reflection, reciprocity, and responsibility as the result of variations in the designed type of mandate, planned outcomes, and partners’ engagement. The chapter also argues for the influential role of professors’ reflexivity in long-term service-learning programs.
