    EUA has published a call for presentations from EUA member institutions for three working groups during its next Annual Conference. The conference “Changing landscapes in learning and teaching” will take place at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) in Belgium from 3 to 4 April 2014.


    On 13 December, the Academic Cooperation Association (ACA), together with EUA, the European Association for International Education (EAIE) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) will organise the one-day Policy seminar in Brussels entitled “For mutual gain: Euro-African cooperation in higher education”.


    As part of its efforts to galvanise the Single Market, the European Commission has recently launched a “mutual evaluation” exercise where member states will be asked to supply details of which professions they regulate and how. The Commission will then produce a comprehensive map, designed to guide peer review.


    At a conference in October, the European Commission launched the classification of European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations (ESCO). Meanwhile, it also announced the publication of new reports on National Student Fee and Support Systems, and on “drop out and completion in HE in Europe among students from under-represented groups”.


    Around 150 participants, including representatives from higher education institutions and associations, public authorities, quality assurance agencies and the media, gathered last week for the Academic Cooperation Association (ACA)-EUA Seminar “Making Sense of the MOOCs”.


    The Institutional Evaluation Programme (IEP) is preparing to evaluate eight universities in the coming academic year. Six universities will have full evaluations while two will have follow-up evaluations to assess changes implemented since their last evaluation.
