Call for contributions: 2024 European Learning & Teaching Forum

The call for contributions for the 2024 European Learning & Teaching Forum is now closed. Authors will be informed from late November onwards whether their contribution has been selected for presentation at the Forum.

EUA and its Learning & Teaching Steering Committee are inviting proposals for papers, workshops and practice presentations for the 2024 European Learning & Teaching Forum. The event, entitled “Learning for, in and with society”, will be hosted by Ruhr University Bochum in Germany on 8-9 February 2024. The deadline to submit proposals is 2 October 2023.

Inspired by the European University Association’s vision for 2030, “Universities without walls”, the 2024 European Learning & Teaching Forum will explore the various links between the societal responsibility of higher education and universities’ learning and teaching activities. The event will address learning from three perspectives:

  • For society, because there are many ways in which universities can have an impact as learning institutions in service to society, and demonstrate this, for example through community-based learning and open education.
  • In society, because universities can only truly serve society if higher education is based on a comprehensive, agile and forward-looking understanding of learning and skills needs, for example through collaborative projects to address societal challenges.
  • With society, because universities need the exchange and engagement of all stakeholders and their broader community to understand, respond to and address current and future learning and skills requirements, including in the context of artificial intelligence, for example through co-curricular and other co-creative approaches to learning and teaching. 

Leadership and management in higher education institutions, researchers, teachers, students, policy makers and other interested stakeholders are invited to submit proposals for presenting practices or research on enhancing learning and teaching in higher education at the institutional, national or international level. The proposed topics are expected to relate to the Forum theme. Proposals related to the topics of the 2023 Learning & Teaching Thematic Peer Groups are also welcome. These include: flexible learning and teaching: what, how, and does it work?; challenges and enablers in designing transnational joint education provision; and development and strategic benefits of learning and teaching centres. For more information, please consult the call.

An intiative launched by the European University Association in 2017, the European Learning & Teaching Forum is an opportunity for the European higher education community to exchange on institutional practice in learning and teaching, and on European higher education policy. The Forum welcomes members of higher education institutions, in particular vice-rectors for academic affairs, deans, heads of learning and teaching centres, as well as management and students, but also policy-makers and other stakeholders.
