URV

EHEA degrees project

The guidelines laid down by the URV’s governing bodies express the desire that all courses should adapt to the parameters of the European Higher Education Area.

For this reason, the process of adaptation is based on methodological exercises that focus on the content in a neutral way so that teachers and heads of studies can become familiar with the criteria and parameters of the Bologna process, thus generating proactive dynamics of change to cope with this new challenge.

Aims

  • To draft curricula that are in tune with the European Higher Education Area

This general aim is accompanied by other objectives that, implicitly or explicitly, are related to this process:

  • To reflect on and improve teaching practice.
  • To initiate innovation processes in teaching methods, assessment processes, the definition of objectives and the selection of content.
  • To become familiar with the nomenclature of Bologna.

Participating faculties, schools and study programmes

Bearing in mind the impending transformation to the graduate/postgraduate studies of the EHEA, all homologated first- and second-cycle programmes took part.

Methodology

The process of adapting the URV to the EHEA was considered to consist of eight tasks. The key agents in the process of change are teachers and heads of studies (HS)
