The Service Learning (SL) in biology course deals with a learning method that assumes students will apply their academic biology curriculum knowledge in the community. Through contacts with a non-government organization (NGO), students define a social problem for which they can try to find solutions throug a project they develop including activities like lectures, workshops, work with people in the community in general. For this work in the course they receive a grade and ECTS credits after critically reflecting on the entire process. This is why relatively few lectures are planned, but lectures will be included during which we will introduce students to the basics of SL, methods to work in the community and to critical self-reflection/thinking. The work related to project development and realization will be conducted as seminars. Volunteering is a good starting point, but SL is more than that, because it involves reflection and reporting within the course about the activities performed, new skills and knowledge acquired in the course of an SL project. A significant personal involvement of the student is therefore expected, but the benefits for both the student and society are greater than in the classical accademic teaching methods.
