The University of Gdansk has been selected to participate in LOTUS Leadership Development Programme under the EU-funded LOTUS (Leadership and Organisation for Teaching and Learning at European Universities) project.
The Leadership Development Programme offers an opportunity for European higher education institutions to address the key challenges in learning and teaching that they are currently facing, by fostering capacity building in implementing systematic approaches to enhancement. The Leadership Development Programme will kick off in October 2021 and will last until June 2022. Over this period, participating institutions will work on their own implementation and change management plans for learning and teaching. They will also exchange with peer institutions in a problem-solving approach and gain a comparative view of solutions proposed by different institutions across Europe to similar problems and challenges.
As part of the project, the University of Gdansk will address the key challenges indicated in priority areas of the European Higher Education Area reforms, such as student-centred learning, digitalisation, teachers’ professional development, institutional organisation and quality management. This will allow our university to provide education at the highest level, which is one of the key objectives of the Strategy of the University of Gdańsk for 2020-2025.
Application for the program was submitted by Dominika Brulińska from the International Office, Anna Smykowska and Katarzyna Kędziora from the Education Section of UG. Team of the University of Gdańsk will be led by prof. Arnold Kłonczyński, Vice-Rector for Student Affairs and Education Quality.
