EUA and its Learning & Teaching Steering Committee are inviting proposals for papers, workshops and practice presentations for the 2022 European Learning & Teaching Forum. The event, entitled “On site, online, on point?”, will be hosted by the University of Deusto in Bilbao, Spain, on 17-18 February 2022. The deadline to submit proposals is 4 October 2021.
While the Covid-19 pandemic has posed considerable challenges to the higher education sector, it has also resulted in an innovation drive, with many universities rethinking the methods and formats that work best for their learners. In reflecting about the future, many questions remain: Looking beyond the trend of the moment, how can new technologies really enhance learning and teaching? How can digitalisation be embedded in a university’s culture in a way that serves the institution’s strategic objectives? How can the potential of digitalisation be harnessed to increase equity of access to learning? What will the implications be for internationalisation? These and many other questions will be at the heart of the European Learning & Teaching Forum.
Leadership and management in higher education institutions, 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 2021 Learning & Teaching Thematic Peer Groups on “Digitally enhanced learning and teaching” are also welcome: strategy and organisational culture, curriculum and assessment, and international partnerships. For more information, please consult the call.
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.
