Following the establishment of citizenship as a compulsory component of the National Curriculum for pre-16 year-olds in England in 2002, attention has turned to the role that universities can play in cultivating civic values. Against this background, the POLiS project has been developing, piloting and evaluating free-to-access, web-based learning activities that aim not only to teach students about current academic debates on citizenship, but also to challenge them to consider their own role as citizens. This article describes the ambitions and principles of the project and the educational context within which it has evolved before turning to an analysis of the lessons that can be learnt from our experience for those wishing to promote the teaching of citizenship in higher education.
