7 December 2018 | Münster
From the 3rd to the 7th of December 2018, 12 students from Uniwersytet Ekonomiczny w Krakowie (UEK) visited MSB to work on a joint project referring to "Student-community engagement"
Society is one of the most important stakeholders for universities. But which forms and activities can be installed to achieve more social engagement. Hence, the aim of this seminar is to investigate how students can be involved in (project-based forms of) interactions with society to create societal impact. Project-based forms of interaction, so-called Science-to-Society (S2S) projects, have received recognition due to their ability to develop students' practical knowledge and competencies, in addition to the prevalent theoretical knowledge provision in universities. S2S projects thus, allow students to have a better understanding of the world.
The Science-to-Business Marketing Research Centre (S2BMRC) of Münster University of Applied Sciences (MUAS) developed together with UEK innovative teaching and learning concepts involving students into real-world projects:
Case Studies on Teachers' and Students' roles in University - Business Collaboration.
The research findings provide evidence that the following competencies and skills are substantially growing in projects: Problem-solving, interpersonal communication, oral communication, decision-making, planning and organising, time management, result orientation, flexibility/adaptability, self-motivation.
