EUA and its Learning & Teaching Steering Committee are seeking proposals for papers, workshops and practice presentations for the 2022 European Learning & Teaching Forum. Entitled “On site, online, on point?”, the event will take place at the University of Deusto in Bilbao, Spain, on 17-18 February 2022. The submission deadline 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 2022 European Learning & Teaching Forum.
Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the Forum provides a platform for discussion on how universities enhance learning and teaching. It 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, all of whom are invited to submit proposals for presenting practices or research. The proposed topics are expected to relate to the Forum theme. Proposals related to the topics of the 2021 Learning & Teaching Thematic Peer Groups are also welcome: strategy and organisational culture, curriculum and assessment, and international partnerships.
We also take this opportunity to inform you that the call for participation in the Leadership Development Programme under the Erasmus+ funded LOTUS (Leadership and Organisation for Teaching and Learning at European Universities) project is open. Online applications are welcome until 5 July. The Leadership Development Programme will kick off with an induction workshop on 4-5 October 2021, with project activities continuing until June 2022.
