Welcome to HERE Seminar in Montenegro
Research-based teaching and learning: From national and institutional policies to practice
May 28-29, 2018
In a study visit to the University of Milan, provided for the HERE in 2017, HERE explored how a specific research-intensive university approached the concept of research-based teaching. This visit left a number of open questions that HERE wished to continue to explore through Technical Assistance Missions and a dedicated seminar that would contrast different examples and approaches. The current seminar is being held with this purpose.
The learning outcomes of this seminar are:
- Clarify terminology and approaches when it comes to different facets of research-based teaching, so as to better explore institutional strengths and weaknesses in HERE countries.
- Explore good practices in institution-driven, strategic approaches on how to integrate research and education missions.
- Generate ideas for how to build capacity of faculty members to implement research-based teaching and create a research based learning environment. This includes both research-oriented didactics and teaching students to use investigative approaches.
- Analyze national frameworks, policies and funding that may help or hinder the development of research based teaching in diverse types of institutions.
This topic can be catered to different user groups and different levels of individuals in the HE sector. Given the diversity of the HERE in terms of profile, it is suggested that this seminar should focus on those who are in a leadership position in institutions, capable of implementing policies that may shape the teaching, learning and research environment. This seminar would also be open to HERE students and to ministry representatives, seeking to gain insight on the possibility national support structures and policies that could be implemented to advance research-based teaching.
