Event description

Description

We invite staff involved in teaching at NUI Galway to the fifth event in a series organised by the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching on the broad question of 'what is a higher education?', this time on the theme of active citizenship. Active citizenship in higher education can be expressed in many different ways, from getting involved in student volunteering or other community engagement activities, to participation in student council, to political activism. The curriculum can support active citizenship through providing service learning opportunities and through fostering ethical mindsets, integrity, collegiality and social and political awareness.

We will hear from staff from various different disciplines and centres in the university about how their undergraduate curricula promote and develop active citizenship, and continue the discussion over a light lunch.

Places are limited.
