MOOC: Europe Engage.
Participants in this course will learn how service-learning can be used in higher education to engage students in real-life projects that complement their theoretical learning and stimulate critical thinking and other 21st century competencies, while fostering student engagement with community.
The course was developed by the Europe Engage project team. The project “Developing a Culture of Civic Engagement through Service-Learning within Higher Education in Europe” is a 3-year project funded by the EU (Erasmus+ program) with the purpose of identifying existing service-learning practice, promoting service-learning and creating a European network. This course will provide participants with an introduction to service-learning pedagogy and methods of integrating a meaningful community service into the curriculum, as well as the evaluation.
The editors of Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement are calling for submissions.
Partnerships recognizes that successful engaged learning depends on effective partnerships between students, faculty, community agencies, administrators, disciplines, and more. The articles in this peer-reviewed journal focus on how theories and practices can inform and improve such partnerships, connections, and collaborations. Studies co-authored by faculty, students, and/or community partners; or examining practices across disciplines or campuses; or exploring international networks, are all encouraged.
Authors are invited to submit research articles, essays, empirical studies, and book reviews related to the varied campus-community relationships that emphasize connections and collaborations in service-learning and community engagement. All manuscripts are forwarded to editorial staff and undergo a blind peer review process. All work submitted should be original material and not under review or published elsewhere.
