Quality Standards for Teaching Social Farming – what future farmers need to know to be successful

What do future social farmers need to know to be successful? The “Quality standards for teaching social farming” respond to this question. The strategic partnership “Social Farming in Higher Education” has developed quality standards that help higher education institutions do develop social farming lessons that pay attention to the interdisciplinary of social farming.

This paper wants to support higher education institutions that are offering or planning to offer social farming courses. It aims at determining quality standards that set the frame for high-quality education in social farming. The quality standards for teaching social farming refer to the teaching content and its prioritisation. This way they can support university course offers on social farming and its comparability in Europe.
