Are you a teacher, teaching assisting staff or just interested in teaching and education? Take, right before the start of the new academic year, a chance to dive deep into the wondrous world of service-learning:

  • How can you reflect and evaluate in a creative way?
  • What is the added value of strategic partnerships?
  • What place does ‘solidarity’ have in service-learning?

Find answers to these questions and exchange experiences with colleagues and other service-learning enthousiasts during the Service-Learning Summer School of 14 and 15 September 2023 in Leuven, Belgium!

The Summer School is organized by KU Leuven in collaborartion with Voorsprongfonds Hoger Onderwijs, the Flemish Network for Service-learning in Higher Education and the international Uniservitate project.
