In the last three decades, the concept of ‘community engagement’ has become widely used and almost appears in the vision of many educational programs. It is argued that the engagement of university students in community projects is an essential part of their professionalization. However, in practice, the concept is differently implemented and sometimes in a contradictory manner. This course will introduce students to the different approaches to community engagement and their applications at different contexts. Firstly, it will introduce students to the difference between the concepts related to community engagement, such as ‘civic learning’, ‘community partnership’, and ‘community participation’. Secondly, it will expose students to the different approaches to community engagement, their strengths and weaknesses. In this regards, students will learn about the assessment tools that are used to evaluate the effectiveness of community projects. Finally, it will help students to design community engagement projects that best meet with the needs of their students or communities.
