Building Capacity for University Management in the..
Building Capacity for University Management in the ENPI South region
Start date: Oct 15, 2012,
This is a regional JEP in Governance Reform involving ten universities in Libya, Morocco, Egypt and Lebanon satisfying the regional priority ‘ University Management and Student Services’ . The wider objective of the project is to demonstrate that good management practices can build sustainable HE cooperation between nations. The project does this by addressing the challenges facing the management of a global university in the 21st Century. There are five specific objectives which are:1. To identify the common deficiencies in University Management throughout the four partner countries. 2. To train/retrain university staff in new management approaches including short courses, Master level modules and e-learning material.3 To establish centres of good governance at each partner university. 4. To install rigorous quality assurance processes.5. To demonstrate that with good management, strong bridges can be built between four ENPI countries.The project will advise on key management skills and structures and use a ‘training the trainers’ methodology where fifty trainers will be trained. Initially, common needs will be identified by a scoping process led by the UK based Leadership Foundation. These results will feed back to the development of a number of short courses, Master’s level modules and an Adaptive, web-based Learning System. This will enable three levels of management to be addressed: existing managers, aspiring mangers and potential managers (graduate students who wish to pursue a career in university management). The masters modules can be assembled to form a Master's degree in University Management. The short courses will be accredited by the universities and the four Ministries will accredit the new Masters programme.Each partner University will form a Centre of Good Governance which will be the focus for the training and networking. The centres will be disseminating agents and ensure the long-term sustainability of the project outcomes.
