Service learning - learning through commitment - is a form of teaching and learning that combines social commitment of students with subject-specific learning. Service learning projects can be realized at all levels - from kindergarten to university. Students are given the opportunity to apply their acquired knowledge in authentic problem contexts.


The students:

  • coordinate projects with the aim of strengthening social responsibility.
  • develop an understanding for the common good.
  • put one's own learning in context with social learning through community involvement.
  • design projects within the framework of the promotion of practice- and occupation-integrating teaching.
  • develop an idea sketch and a plan of action and measures.
  • take responsibility in their projects.
  • learn from each other.
  • apply their skills and knowledge in authentic problem contexts.


Quality Standards Service learning

  • Meaningful Service: Meaningful engagement means that the participants in service learningprojects are involved in meaningful and personally relevant engagement activities.
  • Social commitment takes place on the basis of a change of perspective with regard to self-defined criteria that are subordinate to the understanding of social action.
  • Link to Curriculum: Service learning is deliberately used as a didactic method to achieve general learning and/or content standards.
  • Reflection: Service learning includes diverse and challenging reflection exercises, which are applied again and again throughout the process and stimulate reflection on oneself and one's own relationship to society.
  • Relativity means the identification and reflection of existing social circumstances and values on the basis of which students weigh up, build and carry out their social project.
  • Diversity: Service learning promotes the understanding of diversity and respect among those involved.
  • Youth Voice: In service learning projects, students are responsible for the planning, implementation and evaluation of the projects. Lecturers and cooperation partners act as coaches.
  • Partnerships: Partnerships in service learning are designed cooperatively, profitably for all sides and oriented towards the well-being of the community.
  • Progress Monitoring: All those involved in a service learning project are constantly engaged in evaluating the process quality and achievement of objectives, and the results are incorporated into the improvement and sustainability of the service learning project.
  • Duration and Intensity: The amount of time and the quality of the commitment allow to really meet the needs of the community and to achieve the set goals.
