Community Based Learning (CBL)

Community Based Learning
1. Fourth year students on the BA Administration & IT programme complete a project that requires them to engage with a community group or charity as part of their Project Management and Information Systems module. Students are required to develop a project charter and deliver a product/service that benefits the selected group or charity. The following community groups were assisted by students in 2013: Mervagh Ramblers, Twin Towns Concern Action Group and Donegal Youth Services.
2. Students in the Design Department work on a number of live briefs with charities and niot for profit organisations. Examples include 3rd year Digital Media students re-designing the website for Donegal Mountain rescue and 2nd year Graphic Design students designing new brooch badges for the Irish Wheelchair Association.
