SUN 2017 course on Student Centered Learning

Between 26 June 30 June, 2017 the Yehuda Elkana Center for Higher Education is organizing a CEU Summer University course that intends to challenge the participants to debate the benefits, challenges and opportunities raised by the move in higher education towards student centered learning (SCL). The concept has been introduced recently into the European Standards and Guidelines (ESG) but universities and national quality assurance agencies need to chart their own implementation standards and guidelines with very little information about what SCL means and how it can be measured. The course will discuss existing good practices in student centered learning and will provide a space for exchanges of ideas on how student centered universities should and could be. The course aims to bring together representatives of universities, national quality assurance agencies, student organizations, ministries interested in learning how to adopt SCL, as well as experts in the field and representatives of universities that hosted peer-assessment visits within the Peer Assessment of Student Centered Learning (PASCL) project.

Application deadline: 5 March 2017
