This EUA event, which will be hosted by the University of Warsaw, Poland, on 14-15 February 2019, seeks to explore how to engage and empower students and teachers in developing their learning and teaching. During the Forum, paper sessions will provide opportunities for more detailed discussions about research, policy initiatives and practical case examples of how to ensure successful learning through promoting active learning, supporting teachers in developing their teaching skills and progressing in their careers, and evaluating learning and teaching.
Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the Forum seeks to explore controversies and find common ground on how to engage and empower students and teachers in developing their learning and teaching. More specifically, drawing on the work of the EUA thematic peer groups in 2018, participants will be invited to reflect on how to facilitate better learning in European universities through institutional promotion of active learning; support for teachers to develop their teaching skills and engage in exchange of experience; promotion of career progression in teaching; and rethinking how learning and teaching is evaluated.
The deadline to submit papers is 12 October 2018.
