Launching of the Regional Service-Learning Programme of the Assam Don Bosco University in India
On 15th September, the Assam Don Bosco University officially launched the Service-Learning Programme (India), recently included in the Uniservitate global network in Asia. The meeting, held online, brought together more than 400 attendees between authorities, professors and students of the institution, representatives of De La Salle University (Philippines), Uniservitate regional hub in Asia and Oceania, and references from the Uniservitate Programme (Argentina).
The event was an opportunity to discuss the contributions and significance of service-learning pedagogy in Higher Education. It was also an opportunity to share and show the experiences and work carried out in the service-learning field by the hosting university.
During the meeting, some of the conclusions were the importance of strengthening all actions that respond to the call of Pope Francis: "...offer students the opportunity to involve heads, hands and hearts to address the challenges and problems of contemporary societies."
