2019 European Learning & Teaching Forum

Towards successful learning: Common ground and controversies

The 2019 European Learning & Teaching Forum seeks to explore controversies and find common ground on how to engage and empower students and teachers in developing their learning and teaching.

Hosted by University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland

14 - 15 February 2019

  • The 2019 European Learning & Teaching Forum ‘Towards successful learning: Common ground and controversies’ builds on the recognition that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for successful learning and teaching. Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the Forum seeks to explore controversies and find common ground on how to engage and empower students and teachers in developing their learning and teaching. More specifically, drawing on the work of the EUA thematic peer groups in 2018, participants will be invited to reflect on how to facilitate better learning in European universities through institutional promotion of active learning; support for teachers to develop their teaching skills and engage in exchange of experience; promotion of career progression in teaching; and rethinking how learning and teaching is evaluated.

    The 2019 Forum will be hosted by the University of Warsaw, Poland on 14-15 February 2019. Its primary target audience are vice-rectors for academic affairs, deans, programme directors, academic staff and researchers interested in learning and teaching. The Forum also welcomes the participation of students, policy-makers and other stakeholders in higher education.

    Registration for the Forum will open in late September.

    The University of Warsaw (UW), the largest higher education institution in Poland, is the country’s leader in teaching and research. The university’s activities mainly focus on uniting research and education, as well as creating harmony in the development of all disciplines covered by the university in humanities, social and natural sciences.

    Approximately 46,000 people study at the University of Warsaw every year. The candidates are offered a very broad range of courses in humanities, social sciences and natural sciences, as well as many interdisciplinary courses combining knowledge and skills of several disciplines. UW is the most international academic institution in Poland, with more than 4,500 foreigners studying annually at the University. It is also the most active University among Polish institutions of higher education participating in Erasmus+, the European Union student exchange programme.

    About Warsaw

    Warsaw, the capital of Poland and one of the most dynamically developing European cities, has a distinctive character and spirit. The city has a turbulent history, having been almost completely destroyed during World War II, leading to a large-scale reconstruction project which aimed to recreate much of the original architecture. Its Old Town district, beside the river banks and popular among tourists, is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

    Warsaw is steadily climbing in international rankings of the world’s most attractive urban areas. Not only is it a political, economic, social and cultural centre; it is also an undisputed leader of Polish education – the city’s facilities provide education to 240,000 people each year. According to QS Best Student Cities 2017 Warsaw has been ranked third in a list of the world’s most affordable cities for international students.
