This essay is the result of the 15th Transatlantic Dialogue held in July 2018. The seminar, organised by EUA, the American Council on Education and Universities Canada, and hosted by the European University Institute in Florence, offered a timely opportunity for transatlantic comparisons and a rich dialogue among peers about the role that higher education can play in a politically disrupted world.
Trends 2018 examines how learning and teaching at European higher education institutions evolves in the context of changing demands, technological and societal development, and European- and national-level policies and reforms. This EUA flagship report gathers data from more than 300 higher education institutions in 48 European countries.
The continuous development of teaching competences needs commitment at all levels. It is a systematic process that requires a framework for teaching performance, a professionalisation body, preferably an all-embracing innovation network, and an informal teaching community. Gerhard van de Bunt and Silvester Draaijer from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam discuss why success can only be guaranteed if higher education institutions take the student voice and student feedback very seriously. It is about trust and confidence, not about control and checking.
The EUA Thematic Peer Group on the evaluation of learning and teaching has enhanced a student partnership project at Queen’s University, Belfast. Claire Dewhirst, chair of the Thematic Peer Group, explores the benefits of such a network, in particular the sharing of good practices and the ability to enhance the project’s reliability and validity.
Over three decades of co-operation in higher education through the Erasmus programme and the Bologna process, universities in Europe are co-operating more than ever to offer a positive student experience and equip them for the future. But after university, how are graduates doing?
Following the recent launch of the European Universities Initiative under the 2019 Erasmus+ call, the Directorate General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture (DG EAC) of the European Commission and the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) are hosting an information session in Brussels for organisations interested in the initiative. The session will take place on 18 December 2018 from 10.30 to 13.30 in Brussels and will also be livestreamed.
