AIEA Thematic Forum From Serviced Learning to Engaged Learning: Innovations in Study Abroad This forum was dedicated to exploring ways that the international study abroad programmes can provide credit bearing engaged learning experiences to students which also have reciprocal benefits for communities involved. Many students appreciate being involved in community-engaged projects that give them real-world experiences and allow them to integrate theory with practice. Using the University of Limerick’s Practicum programme, unique in Ireland, as a case study and template, the forum aimed to present the innovative pedagogies and strategies used, including lessons learned from a university-community partnership model to enable a critical approach to service learning in international settings.
