Taking Stock 2022 Survey: Student-Community Service Learning

I'm working with the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement and the University of Westminster on a collaborative research project to understand better how universities engage with communities and organisations through learning and teaching.

As part of this work, we are inviting academics and public engagement professionals to complete a short survey to share examples of modules and courses which actively facilitate student learning in partnership with communities, audiences, and organisations external to the university.

We’re specifically interested in work that is geared towards social impact. Such impacts might include improving knowledge and understanding, changing attitudes and values, creativity and inspiration, and developing skills and building capacity.  

Complete the survey and share your examples here

We're looking for work that you find interesting or are particularly proud of. We have written a blog post with further details about this work and why it matters, including some case studies of the types of practice we’re looking to capture.

The examples you provide will be used by NCCPE to develop:

  • A resource pack illustrating a range of conceptual and practical approaches, and innovative models that others can learn from.
  • A policy report/briefing which sets the scene for how the UK Higher Education Sector can support and enable innovative student-community practices.

The deadline for completing the survey is Friday 9th December. For any queries, please contact me
