Message from the Directorof EOSLHE

As the past decade comes to an end Service-Learning continues to spread throughout institutes of Higher Learning across Europe. The strength of this methodology, based on experiential education and an interest in working with communities and organizations in need, lies in its potential to create a transformative social movement.

The European Observatory of Service-Learning in Higher Education (EOSLHE) shares this commitment with civic minded universities. Here lies the theme of these reports, which combines the efforts of the Executive Team of EOSLHE and the generous contributions from experts in the field of Service-Learning.

This endless work has paid off. Since January 2019, when it was created, the Observatory has conducted multiple activities related to the dissemination, research, promotion of networking, and mapping of Service-Learning. One example of this work is seen in the eighty-six Service-Learning experiences from eighteen countries that the Observatory has recorded so far.

We are proud to present the second Annual Report of EOSLHE. It is a record of 2020, a year full of challenges and opportunities.

For Service-Learning this year has also been an opportunity. S-L has gained much visibility and has demonstrated its necessity. In the academic institutions, we have had the opportunity to restructure projects, research, and teaching to adapt them to the COVID-19 situation.

The main results of this research have shown that Europe has its own idiosyncrasies regarding S-L. European higher education is playing an active role in this increasingly global phenomenon. Society demands social responsibility and civic commitment from tertiary education institutions, and S-L not only meets this requirement but also strengthens teaching and research.
