Community Engagement | Student Research | Societal Impact | Co-creation | Design Education |
University-community engagement (UCE) refers to as a process whereby universities engage with community stakeholder to undertake joint activities that can be mutually beneficial even if each side benefits in a different way (Benneworth et al. 2018).
This SIG is interested in exploring and developing teaching approaches that adopt UCE to create societal impact and valuable learning experiences for students, in the context of the current Strategic Framework 2018-2024 of TU Delft. This particular SIG is a 'light-touch' informal network, fostering knowledge exchange between TU Delft instructors (and beyond), emphasising a bottom-up apprach towards community engagement.
