CALOHEE addresses the next necessary steps for implementing student-centred competence-based higher education. It will provide the tools European Higher Education Institutions need to design and deliver degree programmes that actually prepare learners for their future professions and citizenship, while enhancing their personal culture.CALOHEE builds on what has been accomplished over the past fifteen years by Tuning, the Thematic Networks, the major groups of universities, and related Higher Education bodies. Led by the International Tuning Academy, it includes 10 prestigious and experienced HEIs as coordinators of 5 Subject Area Groups chosen to provide models for the main academic domains (Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Health Care and Engineering). The Advisory Board comprises EUA, EURASHE, ESU, ENQA, ECA and ENAEE, as well as the Santander, Coimbra, Compostela, Utrecht and Unica University Networks, thus ensuring maximum relevance, participation and impact.The five Groups will perfect or create Reference Frameworks for their disciplines and domains; they will produce Assessment Frameworks that will allow HEIs to test how well students actually achieve the expected learning outcomes. With ETS, specialized in large-scale academic testing, the Groups will elaborate a white paper to show how multi-dimensional testing can produce an accurate, nuanced and comparative picture of how European HEIs are performing their tasks.CALOHEE will have extraordinary impact in the EU, in the EHEA and beyond. It will allow HEIs individually and collectively to take major steps forward in the Modernisation Agenda. Not only will they have the tools necessary to design and describe their degree programmes in terms of international frameworks, and to test their students’ actual achievements: they will also be informed and involved in the process of producing them, thus becoming proactive contributors to the revitalisation and refocusing of the Bologna Process.
