|摘要(英文)：||The purpose of this study was to discuss the effects of discussion and role modeling on the outcomes of service courses. We sampled students from four first year classes in Chang Jung Christian University, and divided them into two matched experimental groups. Under similar conditions, the two groups underwent two semesters of classroom teaching, one hour each week, thirty hours in total. In the first semester, the first experimental group was taught with the discussion method, and the second experimental group with the role model method. In the second semester, the teaching methods were switched for the two experimental groups. The data of 82 students from each group were analyzed, and we found the following results:
1.There is no significant difference between discussion and role model methods on the outcomes of service course.
2.The different order of applying the two teaching methods did not influence the outcomes of service courses.
3.The discussion method received better feedback from students than role model method.
4.The order of discussion and role model teaching did not influence the feedback from students.
5.According to the learning outcomes and feedback from students, two semesters’ service courses are better than one semester. Among those topics in service courses, learning that all occupations are fair and valuable was the most helpful knowledge for students.
6.If discussion was taught first, it was more helpful for students understanding of lectures, story sharing, and video watching.
