Capturing the ‘insight’ dimension of Framework of Qualifications: learning from civic engagement

Dr. Josephine A. Boland's research interests relate to higher education policy and practice, as evidenced by her doctoral thesis ‘Embedding a civic engagement dimension within the higher education curriculum; a study of policy, process and practice in Ireland’. She is a part of a team of colleagues, students and community partners in NUIGalway developing a service learning project – ‘Learning to Teach for Social Justice’ – within the context of initial teacher education. In association with Campus Engage, Josephine provides workshops and seminars in support of curriculum and assessment design for service/ community based learning.

This paper considers the principles of civic engagement, teaching and learning through and for civic engagement, and promoting and recognising civic engagment activity.
