Student centred learning assessed in a new ESU project

October 18, 2013

BRUSSELS – On 16 and 17 October, the European Students’ Union (ESU) hosted a kick-off meeting of a new project called Peer Assessment of Student Centred Learning in Higher Education Institutions in Europe, or PASCL for short.

ESU runs this three year project in partnership with four other organisations. Those are the Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe UNICA (Belgium), Central European University (Hungary), University of Jyvaskyla (Finland), Melius s.r.l. (Italy) and Knowledge Innovation Centre (Malta).

Elisabeth Gehrke, Vice-Chairperson of ESU, welcomed all the participants at the meeting. Erin Nordal, a member of ESU’s Executive Committee, presented the first version of the research plan for the project activities and facilitated the follow-up discussion.

The partnership, led by ESU, will for the next 32 months work towards a project that contributes to the implementation of sound student-centred learning (SCL) strategies and approaches at the institutional level and to foster a culture of SCL in higher education institutions across Europe.

PASCL is co-financed by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union.

More information about this new project will be provided as the work proceeds.
