Abstract

This book encourages the development of student-community engagement within universities and other colleges offering programmes of higher education. It aims to be a valuable and accessible resource to support individuals and groups who wish to actively pursue this development, offering perspectives from lecturers and course leaders as well as students and community partners. Through the unique focus of this text, readers will gain a better understanding of the range and scope of practice for student-community engagement within the current social economic and political context, supported by historical background and definitions of engagement. Practical guidelines on how to approach this work are provided, illustrated in a lively way by a variety of case study examples of learning gained from a range of different projects, co-written by students and their community partners. Of equal importance to international academic and community audiences interested in learning partnerships, this comprehensive guide presents the latest thinking and innovations in development and professional practice in student-community engagement - an area of increasing interest and value to higher education institutions and communities alike.
