New EUA report on the work of the thematic peer groups on learning and teaching

24 November 2017

EUA has published a summary report on the lessons learnt by the thematic peer groups in learning and teaching to share the overall outcomes with its membership.

In the first half of 2017 four groups worked as part of the L&T Initiative and covered the following topics:

  • building a link between research and teaching missions of the university
  • empowering students for their future professional life and civic engagement
  • addressing larger and more diverse student bodies ensuring student success
  • fostering engagement in developing L&T.

The report provides the reader with an insight into the discussions and conclusions of the groups with each chapter consisting of the summary of one thematic peer group presenting first the challenges identified, followed by recommendations on how to address them. With this document EUA advocates consolidating a European dimension in learning and teaching that will be driven by universities, in collaboration with national and European policy makers and other actors.

We are currently looking for universities to join the second round of thematic peer groups, that will start their work in early 2018. All further information, including the call for participation with the registration form, are available on the EUA learning and teaching initiative page.
