From Student to Researcher – are we on the right track?

LogoSixth EUA-CDE Annual Meeting From Student to Researcher – are we on the right track?
Hosted by University of Warsaw, Poland 18-19 June 2013.
The trend is clear: structured doctoral education is becoming the norm for doctoral education. Universities have introduced doctoral schools and taught courses; they are monitoring the progress of doctoral candidates and quality of supervision and research in doctoral programmes. At the same time, new legislation is being drafted or implemented across the continent. There are new requirements for the institutional management of doctoral education, and quality assurance agencies and research assessments are taking a more specific interest in the area. This is a good time to ask: are we keeping focus on the goal of doctoral education, to make students into researchers? Are we on the right track? Read more...

Portuguese Higher Education - A view from the outside

LogoEUA has this week published a new report on the Portuguese higher education system, which has been prepared by a team of European experts. This report was carried out at the request of the Portuguese Rectors’ Conference (CRUP), with a view to appraising the Portuguese HE system, identifying challenges and making recommendations. It was presented on Tuesday (19 February) at a special event held at the National Council for Education (Conselho Nacional de Educação) in Lisbon. The Portuguese Secretary of State for Higher Education was in attendance, as was the Deputy Director-General of the European Commission’s Directorate General for Education and Culture. The audience of 100 included university rectors, polytechnic presidents, representatives of the quality assurance and research funding agencies, and teacher and student unions. The event received substantial press coverage.
The team’s presentation was followed up by overviews, provided by Portuguese specialists, of the latest developments in national quality assurance provision, knowledge transfer and regional development. The expert report focuses on two issues which have been the object of discussion for some time, but which the recent international rescue package and its attendant austerity measures have brought to the fore: the re-structuring of the higher education (HE) system and the rationalisation of the national course portfolio.

Outcomes of the Council of the EU meetings

LogoEarlier this month, European education ministers attending the Council of the EU adopted a series of conclusions on investing in education and training, in response to the recent European Commission communication on 'Rethinking Education'. Meanwhile, research ministers meeting at the Competitiveness Council discussed the Europe 2020 strategy for growth and jobs, and open access to scientific information of public-funded research projects.
Council of the EU (Education, Youth, Culture and Sport - EYCS) meeting

Education ministers at the Council of the EU (EYCS) meeting (15 February) adopted a series of conclusions on investing in education and training, in response to the recent Commission communication 'Rethinking Education'. The conclusions seek to highlight priority areas for education and training reform with particular emphasis on improving overall skills and competence levels in order to boost employability and reduce youth unemployment. Moreover, the Council said that they aim at strengthening the link between Europe 2020 goals and the open method of coordination (OMC) in the education field, seeking to promote closer collaboration with other relevant policy committees such as the Economic Policy Committee and the Employment Committee. The full conclusions can be viewed here.
The Council noted that some member states wished that the EYCS Council examine – in detail and on a regular basis – both overall and individual member states' progress in responding to country-specific recommendations (CSRs), while other member states preferred a less prescriptive procedure, contending that education's role in the European semester is already prominent enough and that education is an area of national competence. The Council also held a policy debate on ‘Education and Skills for Jobs, Stability and Growth’, in the context of the European Semester and in particular the education aspects of the 2013 Annual Growth Survey. In November 2012 the European Commission adopted the 2013 Annual Growth Survey (AGS), setting out the five priorities designed to guide member states through the crisis to renewed growth. More details on this debate and the other issues covered at Council are available here. Read more...

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs): EUA to look at development of MOOCs and trends in innovative learning

LogoWhile the concept of free-of-charge, university online courses for large numbers of learners is not a new one, recently established Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have received keen attention from the higher education community and the media. Companies in the US have started offering free-of-charge online education courses. Developed in collaboration with renowned universities and individual scholars, in a short period of time some of these courses attracted tens of thousands of learners around the globe. Coursera, one of the companies, claims to have more than two million registered learners.
The fact that these initiatives emerged rather suddenly, and that some did not seem to have a clear business model — they usually do not charge fees — certainly added to speculation regarding the intentions behind MOOCs and the long–term consequences for the higher education sector. For some, the MOOCs stand for a “learning revolution”, providing high quality education at low costs and unprecedented prospects for enhancing global access and participation. Meanwhile, critical voices have lamented that many of the recent MOOCs are not truly innovative, but have rather traditional learning approaches and goals, and some see them as an attempt to rationalise and further commercialise higher education.
EUA Council (national university associations from across Europe) at its recent meeting in Istanbul held a discussion on MOOCs and their potential impact, but also the prospects that they could offer to European higher education. Discussions were based on a paper, authored by Michael Gaebel (EUA Head of Unit – Higher Education Policy) which has now been published online. Read more...

20 voix pour, 20 contre et 8 abstentions au CNESER sur le Projet de loi ESR

Étudiant demandant la parole en amphiExamen par le CNESER du projet de loi sur l'enseignement supérieur et la recherche
Le CNESER a achevé lundi 25 février l'examen du projet de loi relatif à l'enseignement supérieur et la recherche présenté par la ministre Geneviève Fioraso.
Malgré l'absence de vote des organisations représentatives étudiantes (suite à l'annulation du scrutin les concernant) qui avaient salué les avancées proposées par ce projet de loi, le CNESER s'est exprimé à 20 voix pour, 20 contre et 8 abstentions.
Alors que la loi L.R.U. avait été nettement refusée en 2007 (12 voix pour, 19 contre, plus les dix voix de la F.S.U quittant la salle pour manifester leur désaccord), le projet de loi en cours de discussion reçoit un soutien inédit dans l'histoire du CNESER et vient conforter la priorité que porte ce projet de loi à la réussite étudiante.
Plus de deux cents amendements ont été discutés durant une séance très riche
. La ministre a pris en compte l'avis du CNESER sur plusieurs points qui ont permis de clarifier le projet. D'autres propositions, nées des débats, seront prises en compte dans les textes d'application, après promulgation de la loi.
Lors de son intervention au CNESER, Geneviève Fioraso avait tenu à souligner la priorité accordée à l’enseignement supérieur et à la recherche pour construire un nouveau modèle français en rappelant les quatre axes de ce projet de loi:
  • tout d'abord, offrir de meilleures chances de réussite à tous les étudiants, miser sur les innovations pédagogiques pour assurer la transmission et améliorer leur orientation comme leur insertion professionnelle;
  • donner un nouvel élan et une meilleure visibilité à la recherche française, avec un agenda stratégique de la recherche permettant de répondre aux défis sociétaux et économiques;
  • renforcer la coopération entre tous les acteurs et réduire la complexité institutionnelle, concilier collégialité et efficacité;
  • amplifier la présence de la recherche française dans les programmes européens et le rayonnement international de nos universités, écoles et laboratoires.

La prochaine étape sera l'examen du projet de loi en Conseil des ministres le 20 ou 27 mars prochain.

Universities UK Welcomes Indian Partnerships

http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/misc/nytlogo152x23.gifBy Joyce Lau and Calvin YangUniversities UK, an advocacy group that represents the interests of British academic institutions, has backed the education partnerships announced by Prime Minister David Cameron during a British trade mission to India last week, when representatives from both countries’ education sectors met.
“We are delighted that the prime minister articulated so clearly that there is no limit on the number of Indian students wishing to study in the U.K. and that there are work opportunities following graduation,” Joanna Newman, a Universities UK representative, wrote in an e-mail from the sidelines of the government trip to India. “It is very important to the sector to welcome international students.”
Britain’s student immigrant policy has been criticized as being too stringent, especially after one university lost its right to host non-E.U. students. Read more...
