Abstract: The paper explores briefly past research on service-learning in Information Systems courses over the previous 15 years. One of the conclusions from this is that most of them are not founded on specific theoretical models and are mainly about sharing instructor or student experiences. Then several theoretical frameworks from Education and other disciplines and their relevance for service-learning are analyzed. As a result, several directions for future research towards improvement of service-learning in IS education are proposed.
