Support to EHEA reforms in Germany II
Start date: Jun 1, 2016, End date: May 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

STEERING II is a project aiming to support the project Promoting Bologna in Germany, conducted by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The different national activities of this project – (conferences, seminars and peer learning activities) – will be supported by a team of 20 international experts whose assignments are being coordinated by the DAAD. Furthermore, the DAAD will offer webinars together with the experts and the possibility for German higher education institutions (HEIs) to apply for a site visit of two experts. The thematic focus of all activities will be put on the specific tasks identified in the Bologna implementation report such as:- implementation of a three-cycle structure in all faculties but especially in teacher training and legal education, - enhancement of recognition by improving the interdependence of credits and learning outcomes,- improvement of staff mobility by enhancing an international environment at the German HEIs by promoting the possibilities and benefits of administrative and technical staff mobility and - advancement of quality assurance (QA) with a special emphasis on its international scope.The project is designed to generate political discourse and the promotion of pragmatic concepts for the internationalisation of teacher training and legal education. It also seeks to substantively improve the extent and implicitness of automatic recognition of credits gained abroad. To achieve this, the activities aim at significantly improving the application of ECTS, especially in combination with concrete learning outcomes. The activities on staff mobility are expected to result in an increased acknowledgement of the importance of staff mobility for professional development of staff members, as well as for the level of internationalization of HEIs. Last but not least the project’s peer learning initiatives in the area of QA will lead to a broader understanding of the importance of internationalisation in the context of QA
