News from the Curricular Civic Engagement Special Interest Group

As part of the Teaching Academy, we have set up a new special interest group on Curricular Civic Engagement, which will explore the extent of curricular civic engagement activities at the University of Birmingham, and then support and evaluate new pilot activities in a range of disciplines, to demonstrate efficacy and feasibility. 

If you are already running a module where students engage with the community in some way, either on public/third sector placements, shared projects or students responding to “real” problems or challenges, please let us know.  Similarly, if you’d like to be involved in the group more actively, please also get in touch.

For more details about this group see the full article and for other Special Interest Groups see the SIG web page. If you would like to be on the mailing list please contact Ann Evans or Vikki Burns .
