The Network

Preamble from the articles of association

Service Learning at higher education facilities is a curriculum-based learning and teaching method that uses practical and project-oriented approaches and cross-sectoral cooperation to combine professional and interdisciplinary learning at higher education facilities with the civic commitment of students.

It is used in teaching to build skills in an action-oriented way, contextualises existing knowledge in real-life scenarios, creates holistic learning experiences and enables and motivates students as responsible citizens to sustainably accept their social responsibility.

The civil society community is addressed by Service Learning as needed and benefits from systematically organised commitment.
