Students as Digital Civic Engagers

Students as Digital Civic Engagers – StudentDCE, Erasmus+ project focusing on civic education and digital empowerment in HEIs.
Project 2020-1-AT01-KA203-078125.
17 March 2021

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead

The team of experts focuses on embedding civic engagement in higher education. Exposure to civic issues and civic education at an early stage helps create future engaged civic actors. Teaching students to contribute to public processes and discussions of real issues gives them the opportunity to create the world they deserve. Empowering them with the right digital tools helps them in becoming game changers of their generation.

IO2: DIGITAL CIVIC ENGAGEMENT TOOLKIT. The Toolkit will provide practical guidance and tools for HEI educators and lecturers, wishing to incorporate Digital Civic Engagement activities into their curricula/teaching strategies, with a particular focus on increasing their confidence in using digital tools.

IO3: DIGITAL CIVIC ENGAGEMENT SYLLABUS & OERS. Including a syllabus, learning objectives, lesson plans, assessment guides, and access to a variety of original teaching content and pedagogies (experimental learning, problem-based learning, service learning).
