The development of joint interdisciplinary programmes: the European Approach
|16 Mar 2021
On 19th March at 10 am CET, the Arqus Alliance holds the webinar “European Approach: theory meets practice. Implementation in the Arqus Alliance”, addressed to Arqus academic and administrative staff. The webinar will be held on Teams.
The Arqus European University Alliance firmly believes in the need to foster student-centred and research-based learning through joint and flexible curricula. This implies the development of joint interdisciplinary programs with open entry points for other partners to join at any time.
To open up an opportunity to establish a new perspective of joint programmes evaluation and accreditation the Arqus Alliance organizes a series of events for administrative and academic staff members, representatives of ministries and accreditation agencies. Having a joint discussion could lead to a great change!
The very first introductory seminar is planned for the European Approach model presentation, a case study of this model implementation in EMJMD programme “European Master in Migration and Intercultural Relations and a discussion about implementation possibilities between Arqus Alliance countries.
