Student-centred Frameworks for Quality Learning

This Action Line is coordinated by the Quality Learning Board, chaired by Vilnius University, and has the following main objectives:

  • Enabling staff and students via innovative teaching
  • Fostering student-centred and research-based learning through joint and flexible curricula
  • Enhancing the development of mobility and recognition

Overview of planned activities

  1. Pedagogical lab: Enabling cross-cutting staff collaboration – enabling staff through joint training on innovative/critical/disruptive pedagogies and other cross-cutting subjects
  2. Arqus teaching excellence - Arqus teaching quality framework, awards for outstanding teachers and an innovation fund.
  3. Mobility windows - guidelines for credit accumulation and student progression, tested with 7 programmes with mobility windows
  4. Arqus Twinning – strengthening subject-related collaboration of staff and students (teacher moving together with a group of students to counterparts in another university).
