  • Le Havre de Grâce was established in 1517 by King Francis I of France after the silting-up of the ports of the Seine estuary, Honfleur and Harfleur. 2017 will mark the 500th anniversary of the city! In 1820 and 1852, the city was enlarged, first thanks to the pushing back of the ramparts and later, to their demolition. A war port during the 17th century, successful trading with the Isles during the 18th century and emigration to America during the 19th century; all this contributed to a high demography and a fast development of the city of Le Havre. The industrialisation beginning in the 1920’s gives the first place to the city in Normandy thanks to its worldwide coffee and cotton market.

    In July 2005, UNESCO listed Le Havre’s city, rebuilt by Auguste Perret, as a World Heritage site. Perret was a major 20th century architect, a “concrete poet” and an innovator. Atelier Perret pulled off the feat of taking classic tradition and combining it with modernity to reinvent a unique 133ha centre whose architecture is clear, airy, harmonious and resolutely innovative.

    The HAROPA port complex is the 5th largest port complex in Northern Europe. It is a joint venture between the ports of Le Havre, Rouen and Paris. As the first North-European port of call inbound for world trade, the port complex – which calls at more than 600 ports worldwide – benefits from an outstanding geographic location on the northern seaboard of France and irrigates the European market owing to the river Seine and the high quality of its connection networks.

    Professional Higher Education 4.0: A Change for Universities of Applied Sciences

    lehavre_1

    An avalanche is coming. In the context of technological developments, digitalisation, new requirements and expectations towards a changed employability and higher education as a mass phenomenon, higher education institutions will be likely to change their role and mode of operation entirely. More and more higher education institutions are opening up, in their business models, in their learning designs, in their access regulations and in the way they relate to the world of work. The 4th industrial revolution, or so-called industry 4.0/industrie du futur, will require a shift in approaches and models. “We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before”[1] writes Klaus Schwab head of the World Economic Forum. But what about professional higher education? Are European universities of applied sciences ready to respond to this change? Are they ready to turn the challenges and expectations of industry, the world of work in general and society at large into advantages? How can higher education stay relevant and change its learning design in the light of new digital opportunities, artificial intelligence and quantum computing? Will these changes affect the research, development and innovation agenda of universities of applied sciences? Will they affect their role and the way in which they collaborate with partners from the world of work and their regional community? These revolutionary changes will emerge across various sectors, including those in the public hand: what will be the impact on more social occupations like nursing and caring, will they be overwhelmed as well? How can future leaders and workers be prepared for contexts in perpetual evolution?

    EURASHE’s 27th Annual Conference’s theme ‘Professional Higher Education 4.0: A Change for Universities of Applied Sciences’ will respond to these questions and many more. Join us in Le Havre (France) on 30-31 March 2017.

    industry40_wefThis “blurring [of] the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres” of the next industrial revolution is changing the way higher education operates. European universities of applied sciences, with their deep integration with the world of work, have to be the leaders of this change.

    The conference’s keynote will lay out the frame of 2 days’ worth of breakout sessions and debates addressing the overarching theme of a changing higher education responding to a changing society. A panel of stakeholders will present the various views on the validity and actual impact of these changes. Each of the breakout sessions (workshops, posters, good practices, leaders’ forum etc.) will all address one of the multiple facets of professional higher education 4.0.

    The conference is designed to be a place of sharing, exchange and stock-taking. By attracting different target groups it will bring together the European treasure and body of experience in higher education: institutional leadership and management, head of programmes, teaching staff, researchers, quality assurance managers and agencies, business, public agents and more. Practitioners, the world of work, and policy-makers will be brought together to better understand their respective views, approaches and experiences. The multi-level discussions, mix of plenary and breakout sessions, but also the strong interdisciplinarity of the conference and its networking sessions aim at inspiring participants and higher education institutions alike in meeting the challenges of tomorrow head-on.

    The call for contributions is now closed.

    The call for contributions has been extended to 4 additional weeks: the new deadline to submit a contribution is Thursday 12 January 2017, 12.00 pm (noon) CET. All submissions received after this time will not be considered.

     

    Introduction

    EURASHE and the IUT of Le Havre with the Assemblée des Directeurs d’Institut Universitaire de Technologie (ADIUT) will organise EURASHE’s 27th Annual Conference in Le Havre (France) on 30-31 March 2017 under the title ‘Professional Higher Education 4.0: A Change for Universities of Applied Sciences’. It will address the topics of the 4th industrial revolution, or so-called industry 4.0/industrie du futur, but especially the response of higher education: What do such developments mean for qualifications? What will be the impact on the width and specialisation of graduates and professionals? Will personal development still play a role in education? What challenges and impulses will rise for European higher education and its professionally oriented segment? Are universities of applied sciences ready to respond to this change? How will they turn the challenges and expectations of industry, the world of work in general and society at large into advantages? How can higher education stay relevant and change its learning design in the light of new digital opportunities, artificial intelligence and quantum computing? What about more social occupations like nursing and caring, will they be overwhelmed as well? How can future leaders and workers be prepared for contexts in perpetual evolution?

     

    Call for contributions

    We invite contributions from practitioners from higher education institutions and relevant stakeholders from the field, including students, national authorities, quality assurance agencies, companies etc.

    The contributions to the conference are expected to address, among others, innovative and experimental approaches in teaching, learning, research, development and innovation, governance, and institutional strategies; but also the opening up of institutions and the ways of communicating with the regional community and world of work, learning about potential future requirements; as well as the engagement of students in all aspects of the higher education provision – all in order to predict, reflect on and/or face the challenges and changes brought on by the world of work environment and society. Lessons learnt from such experiences – also negative ones – will be of great contribution to the conference.

    The call for contributions has been extended to 4 additional weeks: the new deadline to submit a contribution is Thursday 12 January 2017, 12.00 pm (noon) CET. All submissions received after this time will not be considered.

    EURASHE welcomes three types of contributions:

    1. Breakout sessions: Each full parallel breakout session will be attended by about 30-40 participants and will last 75 minutes. The programme committee expects to accept about 12 proposals for this year’s conference.
    2. Posters: All posters will be presented simultaneously during one single plenary poster session of 60 minutes. The programme committee expects to accept about 15 proposals.
    3. Good practices: Groups of 2-3 good practice examples or inspiring, experimental attempts will be presented together within a 75-minute session. Each example should last about 10 minutes with an additional 10 minutes for discussions. The programme committee expects to accept about 10 proposals for 3 specific parallel sessions.

    EURASHE’s annual conference is a practitioners’ conference, contributions that are not solely based on scientific papers are preferred: practical experiences and summaries of lessons learnt for inspiration of peers are a key element.

    We will especially welcome contributions that reflect the theme of the conference, including but not limited to, addressing the response and impact of universities of applied sciences/professional higher education towards the changes brought on or envisaged by the 4th industrial revolution/a changing society (see above).

    We also welcome submissions from different perspectives, e.g. a case study developed jointly by an institutions and a company.

    EURASHE’s annual conference is an excellent opportunity to present current practice or research and test new ideas, elicit feedback from colleagues and stakeholders, and engage with all participants. All contributions are expected to seek to stimulate a discussion with the participants, thus enhancing peer-learning.

    EQUIP_logo_nlEURASHE will organise a focus group in the framework of the EQUIP project in  Le Havre (France) on 30-31 March 2017 (lunch to lunch) in parallel to our 27th Annual Conference. The one-day focus group aims at verifying and further consolidating the evidence collected about the implementation challenges of the ESG 2015, sharing good practice, and discussing approaches to solving these challenges and their applicability in different contexts. Sessions of the focus groups will explore:

    • Challenges in meeting the expectations of the ESG 2015
    • Different approaches to quality with the ESG and other tools
    • Potential solutions and case examples

    Participants will benefit from the opportunity to discuss in depth in small groups some of the practical challenges in dealing with quality assurance on a daily basis, and exchange ideas with peers from across Europe on how to approach these issues. The EQUIP project partners will use the outcomes of the focus group to develop a study examining the implications of the introduction of the ESG 2015, innovative approaches to their implementation, and recommendations to individual stakeholder groups.

    Participation is free of charge but limited to 25 participants. For this reason participation is on invitation/validated expression of interest only. The organisers believe that participants with the following profile will benefit the most from taking part in EURASHE’s EQUIP focus group:

    • Representative of a university of applied sciences/university college/institution engaged in professional higher education
    • Knowledgeable about quality assurance and the ESG 2015
    • Awareness of quality assurance frameworks in the EHEA
    • Senior management staff or institutional leadership
    • Commitment to take part in the full focus group

    Please send your CV to Alexandre Wipf to take part in this EQUIP focus group.
