CIRCLET

Here is the opportunity to apply for two tools supporting community engaged learning and research. You can apply to join the new CIRCLET international learning community, through a Learning Circle or an Online Professional Development Module. Both initiatives are focused on rethinking teaching to include community engaged research and learning (CERL), enhanced by educational technology. Both offer the opportunity to work with colleagues in other countries. Integrating CERL into your teaching can be mutually beneficial for students, for communities and for you.

CIRCLET is an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project. The project aims to strengthen capacity among higher education lecturers to improve learning outcomes for students by rethinking curricula to incorporate CERL, with an online dimension. Corvinus Science Shop is a partner, along with Queen’s University Belfast (lead), Open University of Catalonia, TU Dublin and Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

Our local and international learning circles will involve small peer groups of lecturers coming together on a regular basis to share learning, and explore issues and solutions – face-to-face where possible, otherwise online, or a mix. Local learning circles will involve no more than 20 hours contact time and around 5-8 hours independent learning, across 2 semesters. International learning circles may involve additional time.

Our online module will involve 9 weekly lunchtime webinars in semester one, with regular small individual and group assignments. Around 100 learning hours (inclusive of webinars) are required and it offers 5 ECTS.

Participants on both initiatives will be supported by Corvinus Science Shop to identify and make connections with suitable community partners for CERL projects. The costs of both initiatives are fully covered by Erasmus+ project funding, so there is no cost to you or your department/school.

To find out more about the CIRCLET project, and view the call for applications, FAQ, and application form, visit www.circlet.eu. The deadline for applications is 11 May.

You can contact Réka Matolay, who are coordinating Corvinus’s involvement in this project at Corvinus Science Shop: science.shop[at]uni-corvinus[dot]hu, or find her on MS Teams.
