Long abstract:

European Higher Education is currently transforming; the Bologna process and the developing audit culture are changing the pedagogical context for all those involved in teaching and learning; likewise e-learning and net resources are opening up a global context and database of almost infinite magnitude. This workshop intends to showcase current developments in our 'learning fields' initiated by EASA members. Possible areas of interest may include: educational ethnographies; teaching methodologies; experiential education; impact of audit culture and the politics of education; relationship between research and teaching; cross cultural studies of the educational context and experience; cosmopolitanism and education; Socrates educational programmes.
