EURASHE will organise a Seminar on Professional Higher Education (PHE) titled ‘Building bridges for a more professional higher education‘ in Otočec (Slovenia) on 16-17 October 2014.

The Seminar is a 2 day event focusing on the mission of professional higher education (PHE). It is intended to inspire institutional management, staff members, world of work and policy-makers in profiling their institutions and their everyday work.

EURASHE has focused in the past years on the mission of professional higher education, mainly though the HAPHE (Harmonising Approaches to Professional Higher Education in Europe) project. At the very end of the project, EURASHE decided to host this Seminar, based on the outcomes of the organisation’s and project’s work. While developing Profile of Professional Higher Education in Europe, a diversity of approaches has been researched, large amount of stakeholders consulted, bringing us to the final ‘Definition and Characteristics of PHE’. These will serve as a basis for the discussions in Otočec, developing the programme in 3 tracks: Policy and Strategy, Teaching and Learning and Research, Innovation and Development. Throughout the sessions grouped around these core characteristics of PHE, we will gather input from institutional representatives, the world of work and other relevant stakeholders. We will as well welcome speakers from various countries in order to share with participants best practices from both institutional and policy point of view. Involvement of different stakeholders, with a strong position of the world of work in the programme will further stimulate building of bridges between the higher education sector and the world of work, for a more professional higher education.

Registrations are now open! The registration fee is set at 290 EUR, members of EURASHE will benefit from a reduced rate of 190 EUR. Further information on the rationale, the programme as well as travel and accommodation information on the page of the conference here!
