Work Package 3 – Learning for Societal Impact

WP 3 

Main objectives within this work package

  • Equip a diverse student population with the skills and mindset to make them social entrepreneurs and innovators, willing and able to tackle the major challenges of our societies.

The following activities will contribute in achieving this objective:

Aurora Competences Framework

Develop and implement the Aurora Competences Framework of general academic and personal competences with progressive performance descriptors, needed to ensure students become social entrepreneurs & innovators. In addition, improve and extend the use of Service Learning and International Internships as specific Aurora pedagogical methods contributing to skills/values development.

Aurora Social Transformation

Make our student population reflect the talent in the communities we serve, without underrepresentation of any groups in our population.

Aurora Borderless Learning

Create an Aurora Education Area with recognised mobility for all. All Aurora students have access to one set of digital services, aligned with the European Student Card and EuroPass and Aurora students can register through one Aurora course catalogue.

Aurora Pilot Domains

Test and implement our innovations in competences and mobility opportunities as well as in the SDG perspective in all programmes in four pilot challenge domains:

  1. Sustainability & Climate Change
  2. Digital Society & Global Citizenship
  3. Health & Well-being
  4. Culture: Diversity & Identity
