Purpose Impact Learning Day and Special Interest Group

As teachers and educational developers, we believe it is valuable to provide students with education that allows them to learn about society. And with which they can also make an impact. Impact learning is a form of 'community service learning'. And teaches what skills students need to contribute to society.   

The Impact Learning Days are organized by the Special Interest Group Impact Learning. This group is a collaboration between the Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies and the network of Teaching & Learning Centres (TLC). This network aims to make impact learning more common practice at the UvA. In addition, interested parties and experts by experience exchange knowledge with each other through the network.
