The Circle U. Think and Do Tank on the Future of Higher Education

When we implement transformational changes in our teaching methods and programmes, we want to accompany these with critical reflection and evidence and become an active co-creator to the policy development within the European Education Area and linking it to the European Research Area.

As national flagship universities we will provide our academic and administrative expertise, our networks and our enthusiasm to European policy-making bodies.

The Think and Do Tank will also critically reflect on the role of higher education in creating a sustainable world and contribute to transforming curricula and teaching methods towards sustainable education practices.

Multilingualism, being an important topic for our alliance (representing six  languages),  the Think and Do Tank will work to identify obstacles related to the ambition of Europeans speaking two foreign languages; based on the findings we will develop a dedicated project, including seeking co-funding, with the aim of addressing the obstacles identified.

Challenges related to IT and education, whether it is the digital skills gap or the future of digital education, will also be at the forefront of the critical reflection.

These are the Chairs in the Think and Do Tank on the Future of Higher Education
