ben:edu – Swiss Network for Service Learning at higher education facilities

The Swiss Network for Service Learning at higher education facilities ben:edu (benificium and education) promotes Service Learning projects at Swiss universities and higher education facilities. We support lecturers and students in their projects, promote collaboration with partners with real-world experience and showcase projects in which students commit to the common good as part of their studies.

2021 Service Learning Conference

From 18 to 19 June 2021, we will be organising our first conference on Service Learning. Our aim is not only to raise awareness of the innovative teaching/learning concept, but also to connect stakeholders from higher education facilities with civil society exponents.

Service Learning projects

On our project platform, which is updated on a continuous basis, you can find numerous Service Learning projects from students hailing from all around Switzerland. Get inspiration for your own Service Learning projects.

Service Learning

Service Learning is a teaching and learning method that was originally developed in North America and is now becoming increasingly widespread in Europe. It combines academic learning with civic involvement.
