The connection that may be established between learning and service offers two ways to approach the subject: one based on the curricular content and another that takes the service possibility offered by the collaborating institution as a starting point to find a connection with the curricular content (Tapia, 2006).
Several studies (Eyler and Giles, 1999) have shown that SL projects enhance the understanding and demonstration of competences in the real world.
Any lecturer interested in taking part in a project should contact the SL Committee by sending an e-mail to email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Students may freely choose whether or not they would like to take part in the various projects available. They may also propose other projects, which will be assessed by the SL Committee.
