Facilitating the use of Bologna Tools - Faboto

Although the main elements of the Bologna agenda are implemented in The Netherlands, there are still items that require attention, especially in the field of transparency. This concerns the information on educational programmes; defining, assessing and demonstrating the achievement of learning outcomes and the use of the Diploma Supplement. Another important item is the connection of Dutch higher education with education in other countries, for the purpose of developing joint programmes.

To better position Dutch higher education, this project focuses on supporting higher education institutions in their activities to fully implement the Bologna philosophy. The overarching aim of the project is to facilitate the use of the transparency tools both for HEIs and quality assurance agencies. This means that the Dutch Ministry of Education (OCW), together with the National Agency Erasmus+ (EP-Nuffic) and the National Accreditation Organisation (NVAO), wants to increase awareness of the remaining tasks, and supports the institutions with information, training and advice.  In this project we work closely together with the management of higher education institutions, and with the policy makers, teachers and students within those institutions.

What is the project about?

The project involves training sessions for stakeholders within the institutions. Elements in these sessions are: development of a multilingual ECTS course catalogue; describing learning outcomes in a clear and measurable way, meaning and use of de grading table and the development of joint/multiple and double degrees. For this purpose, the national team of Higher Education experts will be continued. This team will also continue its dialogue with their counterparts in vocational education. A peer learning activity on assessment and demonstration of the achievement of intended learning outcomes with 100 European stakeholders (HEIs, quality assurance agencies) and Higher Education Experts is an important part of this project. This event will fill in the structural gap regarding the lack of available training in this field as identified by the Bologna Implementation Report. In the context of transnational/international education a study is carried out on the challenges of internationalisation and the European Higher Education Area, focusing on recent developments as transnational education, joint programmes and online learning. This project also aims to make a contribution to the Dutch agenda for the ministerial conference in Yerevan in 2015 and the project partners will actively disseminate the main outcomes of the conference to the stakeholders in The Netherlands.
