University-Community Partnership and Student Learning: Global Experiences Webinar

​​​Community engagement at universities is critical to direct research, education, and innovation to the challenges confronting our communities.  What are the different forms of University Engagement with the Community? And, what learning do we expect our students to acquire? These are questions that were addressed during a webinar titled: “University-Community Partnership and Student learning: Global Experiences" organized by the Transforming Higher Education project on the 6th of October 2021. 

​The Objective of this webinar was to share experiences about different forms of University-Community Engagement such as, service-learning courses, participative or collaborative research, extension, and entrepreneurship, and to present the main student learning developed during those experiences. The webinar was moderated by Dr. Julieta Mazzola, the Technical Coordinator Community Development Program and Professor at EARTH University and coordinated by the Project manager Dr. Roula Bachour from FAFS. Four panelists Dr. Gael Pressoir from Quisqueya University in Haiti, Dr. Raquel Oclarit-Salingay from Central Mindanao University in the Philippines, Mr. Kule Enos Katya from Gulu University in Uganda and Dr. Tobias Wünscher from EARTH University in Costa Rica shared their experiences and participated in the discussion about the topic.
