Promoting Social Responsibility of Students by Embedding Service Learning into Education Curricula



The ENGAGE STUDENTS project focuses on social responsibility of higher education institutions at students and teachers level. Strengthening the social dimension in education has been an important European priority, that has been accentuated even further by the Commission in the renewed EU agenda for Higher Education. Innovative curricula and teaching approaches  are seen to contribute to reduce the current high skills gap between students and labour market needs. Especially the integration of extra curricular experience into study programmes is identified as solution for enhancing students’ transversal skills, better preparing them  for finding a job.
