Service-Learning as a pedagogy to promote Inclusion, diversity & Digital Empowerment

Introducing SLIDE

The Service learning, inclusion and digital empowerment Erasmus+ project, or SLIDE is a multi-national European project between Dutch, German, Austrian, Italian, Croatian, Slovakian, Romanian and Spanish experts on service learning. SLIDE is a response to the acute needs of education brought into focus by the COVID-19 pandemic. Firstly, the need to digitally empower university who rapidly have to transform from teaching professionals into learning experience designers and experts in emerging technologies. Secondly, a need to close the gap between self perceived and actual digital competences of university students by equipping them with digital fluency/ intelligence/ engagement skills, but also with pedagogical skills to sensitize them towards digital inclusion of underprivileged and underrepresented groups and to empower them to address sensitive contemporary societal issues while developing their digital competences. And thirdly, a need to combine the digital empowerment of teachers and students with the pedagogical approach of Service-Learning understanding that this promotes diversity an inclusion, while establishing connections between higher education institutions and communities at risk, either in direct proximity or rural/remote areas.  (cf Manifesto)
