Call for contributions for the 2021 European Learning & Teaching Forum
EUA is inviting proposals for papers, practice presentations and workshops at the 2021 European Learning & Teaching Forum ‘Embedding and facilitating sustainability’, hosted by the University of Deusto in Bilbao, Spain from 18 to 19 February 2021. The deadline to submit proposals is 8 October.
The European Learning & Teaching Forum is an EUA event that provides an opportunity for participants to meet and discuss developments in learning and teaching at European universities. The Forum builds on EUA’s work with its member universities on this topic. Alongside the bottom-up approach, the Forum makes use of EUA’s extensive policy work in European higher education. The Forum is an ideal event for vice-rectors for academic affairs, deans, and management involved in learning and teaching. It also welcomes students, policy-makers and other stakeholders in higher education.
The path towards a sustainable future does not only require revolutionary technologies, but also and foremost adequate education. The 2021 European Learning & Teaching Forum will explore how learning and teaching ensures access to the knowledge and skills needed to reach the UN Sustainable Development Goals and accomplish the transformations that our societies and economies require. It will also invite participants to reflect on whether the organisation of learning and teaching at their own institutions is delivered in an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable manner. Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the Forum provides a platform for discussion on how universities enhance learning and teaching, while also presenting the work of the 2020 EUA Learning & Teaching Thematic Peer Groups
Leadership and management in higher education institutions, students, policy makers and other interested stakeholders are invited to submit proposals for presenting current practice or research. The proposed topics are expected to relate to the Forum theme. Proposals related to the topics of the 2020 Learning & Teaching Thematic Peer Groups
are also welcome: approaches in learning and teaching to promoting equity and inclusion, environmental sustainability of learning and teaching, and meeting skills and employability demands. For more information, please consult the call
