The European Higher Education Area in 2015: The Bologna Process Put to the Test
We, the Department for Educational Policy of the Austrian National Union of Students federal body of Representatives, would like to invite you to the first BiPol workshop of this year!
When: Wednesday, 02 December 2015, 16:00
Where: Meeting room ÖH Bundesvertretung, Taubstummengasse 7-9, 1040 Vienna, left wing
Here is another short abstract on the topic covered:
“By promoting the mobility of students and university staff, the Bologna Process is contributing to the further development of higher education systems in Europe. It uses various instruments to achieve these goals. These include comparable study structures, innovative teaching and learning, quality assurance based on common standards and guidelines, and transparency tools.
Which institutions are in the process of elaborating and continuing this study reform? In June 1999, 29 European countries signed the voluntary Bologna Declaration to create a European Higher Education Area. In Bologna and at subsequent conferences, the respective communiqué set goals and priorities for implementation. The current Bologna Yerevan Communiqué is a child of its time, i.e. a reflection of the first officially expressed self-criticism as well as the given global political and economic crises.
This workshop is aimed at those representatives of the ÖH who are interested in the Bologna Process, its origins, its concrete fields of application in higher education practice and its further development in terms of content and policy.
Participation is free and open to all interested individuals.”
