The initial part of a multistage study incorporating the stages of Intervention Research and Appreciative Inquiry led to the identification of 10 key areas to be addressed in an in-service training program. The aim of the utilization of knowledge in the form of a model for in-service training is to enable the adoption of service-learning in the higher education curriculum. The 10 key areas involve aspects from authentic university-community partnerships to practical support for the lecturer. It considers the application of service-learning in the various dimensions of finding a standard form of assessing student learning, to the adjustment of teaching methods to allow for a more experiential and vocationally relevant form of learning. This paper provides indicators and sources of what aspects to address in such training.
