Community-oriented teaching

The “community-oriented teaching” programme

The “community-oriented teaching” programme (“Bürgeruniversität in der Lehre”) supports teaching formats involving external cooperation partners (e.g. service learning, teaching and science communication, learning through research and internships). Funding is awarded from HHU central quality improvement funds in a tender process.

The courses funded via the programme are aimed at fostering the social commitment of students to enable them to develop personal values and a sense of civic responsibility, while the close collaboration with community partners is aimed at facilitating the transition to the non-academic labour market through the close integration of teaching and transfer activities.

You can find information on applications for funding under the programme, an overview of funded projects to date and our blog (German only) here. In the blog we showcase scientific projects at HHU, draw attention to student activities and provide an insight into what’s happening on campus. In particular, the blog provides a platform for science communication projects within the framework of teaching activities at HHU.
