Community-oriented teaching

The “community-oriented teaching” programme

The "community-oriented teaching" programme uses central quality improvement funds to support socially relevant teaching projects involving external cooperation partners and target groups beyond the research and specialist community. The following teaching formats are eligible for funding:

  • Teaching and science communication
  • Service learning
  • Research-based learning in/with society

The teaching projects funded by the programme are intended to promote the social engagement of students in order to enable them to develop personal values and a sense of civic responsibility. Cooperation with community partners and close links between teaching and transfer activities are also intended to facilitate the transition to the non-academic job market. The programme also gives students the opportunity to reflect on social problems and acquire skills in communicating scientific knowledge.

You can find further information on applications for funding as well as the eligible teaching formats 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.
