Call for participation in the 2022 Learning & Teaching Thematic Peer Groups

The call is now closed. 

The call for participation in the 2022 Learning & Teaching Thematic Peer Groups is now open. Participation offers EUA member institutions an opportunity for peer-learning and exchange of experience. Resulting institutional practices and recommendations are published and presented at the annual European Learning & Teaching Forum. The work of the groups also feeds into EUA’s policy work in the context of the Bologna Process and the European Education Area.

The current call for the 2022 Thematic Peer Groups addresses issues that emerged as particularly pertinent during the first year of the Covid-19 crisis. All topics have a digital dimension, but are not limited to it. The themes are:

  • Digitally competent teachers in designing quality learning environments
  • Collaborative teaching practice
  • Needs and wellbeing of student and staff


The call is open for EUA member institutions. Participating representatives should be senior leadership and staff with strategic and institutional-level responsibility for learning and teaching.

There is no participation fee. All meetings will be held virtually and would not require any travel. There might be a chance to hold the group’s final workshop in person, which would take place on a self-funded basis. EUA will cover catering costs.

The deadline for applications is 28 January 2022. The results of the call will be announced by mid-February 2022.

As for the previous, the present round of Thematic Peer Groups is co-organised with the DIGI-HE, a three-year Erasmus+ co-funded project, led by EUA in partnership with Dublin City University (Ireland), Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg (Germany), Vytautas Magnus University (Lithuania) and University of Jyväskylä (Finland). The aim of this project is to support higher education institutions in enhancing their institutional approaches to digitalisation.
