EUA Conference: April 3-4, Brussels

EUA Annual Conference 2014

EUA Conference:  Changing Landscapes in Learning and Teaching, is hosted by Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Brussels, Belgium on April 3-4, 2014.

European higher education has been in constant flux for well over a decade. However, some voices are predicting that the real revolution still lies ahead. Labour market demands and technological innovation are often cited as factors triggering change, with MOOCs, growth in private for-profit providers and increased global competition between institutions and countries given as evidence that disruptive change is already underway. Fears are being voiced that universities could run the risk of losing significance, if they continue to follow current learning and teaching models, which, some argue, may be unable to respond to the urgent need for more and better higher education at lower costs.
