CORE Principle Rethinking University

Rethinking and developing the university experience

Challenges faced by universities: lessons learned from Bologna

Shift from teaching to learning In 2008 the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) called for a new learning culture

Carefully-crafted qualification outcomes, adapted teaching, learning and examination forms, the further qualification of teachers and a more active role of the students need to be harmonized and coordinated.  

(„Für eine Reform der Lehre in den Hochschulen“, HRK, 2008)

The task of preparing students optimally for professional life needs to be brought to the foreground. (...) An active learning culture does not consist of traditional, frontal lectures, but should rather put the students in a position to acquire the knowledge by themselves through research and practice. Programs should be output-oriented, because what really counts is what the students can actually do at the end of their studies.

(DIHK, 2011)
