It provides inspiration to lecturers and researchers to learn about stakeholder engagement of varying degrees in education and research. This toolbox has been developed in order to support VU Amsterdam’s strategy to engage staff and students with the society as a whole. We present inspiring examples, models and testimonials on societal engagement, and provide background material and practical tools used by lecturers in their engagement activities. This “inspiration” toolbox will be useful for those who seek to explore the concepts of community service learning and participatory engagement in education and research.
This is a product of the Broader Mind – Community Service Learning (CSL) team, at the Athena Institute.
