Welcome to the HERE conference website

Welcome to the "Innovating learning and teaching: the next phase of the Bologna Process" conference website, taking place in Tbilisi from the 3 to 4 of December 2015.

The first HERE conference will discuss the new modes of learning and teaching in higher education and their implications for pedagogies, practices and policies. All main issues will be touched upon: student-centred learning, innovative curriculum design and pedagogical practises, assessment methods, the interplay between internationalisation, and the use of ICT in learning and teaching. It will draw upon interesting cases from Europe and from the Partner regions and countries.

The programme is a balanced mix of speaker presentations and interactive discussion groups, tailored to meet the interests of its audience. It will allow participants to learn and discuss about the current state and future trends in learning and teaching, draw on and discuss the experiences and reflections of other participants, and create networks around issues of common interest.
