We produced an information sheet for community partners interested in getting involved or about to get involved in a Students Learning With Communities project; we hope you will find it helpful.

Information Sheet for Community Partners

*Thanks to Sean O'Fearghail, DIT Engineering Lecturer for his contribution to this information sheet.

If you would like to read some current ideas for research projects ideas which other community partners have given to us click here to view.  This may give you ideas for projects that you would like to undertake with DIT students and staff.


If you would like to see DIT students getting involved in collaborative research projects with you, you might be interested in these guidelines on roles for all participants.


For further information see our publications page for details of articles/conference papers by staff on the Programme for Students Learning With Communities on this work.
