By Tracey Burns and Andrew Macintyre. "Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me". So goes the English nursery rhyme taught to children to console them if they have been called names, or teased by their friends or classmates. But no matter how often you repeat it as a child, it doesn’t really make you feel better. Why? Because it’s not true. Read more...

The European Students’ Union (ESU) welcomes a forward looking report presented today on new modes of learning and teaching. The report highlights that students are unique and so is the way they learn. Therefore, new ICT tools should cater for individual ways of learning, contributing to a real student-centred learning. Androulla Vassiliou, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, presented this report from the High Level Group on the Modernisation of Higher Education. It is the second report published by the High Level Group. The first one on Improving the quality of teaching and learning in Europe’s higher education institutions was published in June 2013.

It is a common understanding that now and in the future the role of higher education will continue to increase. In a broad term, it is a consequence of a whole series of reasons which can be described as emergence of the “knowledge-based economies", globalization and of the new wave of digital communication.

The American Council of Trustees and Alumni has issued its sixth report on the quality of college education, which is based on the inclusion in the curriculum of required courses in literature, US government or history, a foreign language, mathematics, economics, science and composition. The council believes that these courses are essential elements in a broad undergraduate education.
The council found that most Americans support a broad curriculum although many are sceptical about the quality of college education. In addition, colleges appear publicly supportive of a sound general core curriculum. However, surveys have also repeatedly found that students are ignorant of even the most basic facts of American government and history.
Altogether 1,098 four year colleges were assessed according to whether they required students to take courses in the seven core subjects.
