'Mapping and Critical Synthesis of Current State-of-the-Art on Community Engagement in Higher Education', a TEFCE new publication

The project 'Towards a European Framework for Community Engagement in Higher Education (TEFCE)', framed in the Erasmus + Forward Looking Cooperation Projects and led by the Institute for the Development of Education (Croatia) and the Technische Universität Dresden (Germany) and with ACUP as a partner presents its first publication Mapping and Critical Synthesis of Current State-of-the-Art on Community Engagement in Higher Education (2018). It is the result of 10 months of work and discussions between the members of the team of experts and their authors are Paul Benneworth (CHEPS), Bojana Ćulum (UNIRI), Thomas Farnell (IDE), Frans Kaiser (CHEPS), Marco Seeber (UGENT), Ninoslav Šćukanec (IDE), Hans Vossensteyn & Don Westerheijden (CHEPS).

The document provides the basis for the TEFCE project by defining the concept of community engagement in higher education and mapping international initiatives that have attempted to develop frameworks to monitor / measure community engagement. The publication identifies the needs, gaps and opportunities of a European framework for community participation in higher education. Therefore, it provides the basis for developing a "TEFCE toolkit" for community participation, which is currently underway and that will be presented and discussed with the entire TEFCE consortium at the next project meeting in Barcelona that will take place on the 17th and 18th of January.
