In the past three years VUB-CERL-team (UNIVER.CITY) has been investigating ways to put VUB’s ambition to be an URBAN ENGAGED UNIVERSITY into practice. An institution wide learning community was installed, open to university staff, students and community partners with a shared interest in Community Engaged Research and Learning (CERL) strategies. The activities of the CERL-learning community allowed us to develop a VUB-proof narrative about CERL and collect a series of tools, guidelines, activity plans, redesign instruments and other resources that are now available as a CERL-toolkit on CANVAS. Anyone who is interested in community engagement, can register for the course through VUB LRN and navigate freely through the CERL-toolbox.

Below, you can already watch our knowledge clips: short informative video’s on several CERL-related themes and topics.
