The SLUSIK Partners are happy to present the state-of-the-art report, published on the 20th of September, 2021. This report aims to further explore the concept of service-learning outside of the higher education setting, to analyse the existing service-learning models, types and practices within and outside of the SLUSIK consortium (but still only within European countries), thus to set the grounds for adapting the existing models from higher education institutions in order to create new ones for the secondary schools to be tested.
The report itself is an outcome of several stages of research and analysis that included desk-top research, development of questionnaires and conducting small-scale studies among academics and other educational professionals, development of interview protocol and conducting interviews with academics and previous research analysis and literature review on the service-learning.
