LERU publishes position paper on education in research-rich universities
On 2 Februray 2017, the League of of European Research Universities (LERU) presented a position on how universities can provide the best possible student education for the twenty-first century. The position paper ‘Excellent education in research-rich universities’ analyses the characteristics of excellent education and it illustrates some of the diverse ways in which LERU universities are changing their approach towards education. LERU advocates that in striving for excellent education it is crucial to recognise, support and celebrate educational leadership. The barriers identified are both within universities and outside. The paper also makes recommendations to universities and policy makers, at both national and EU levels, about how education at universities can be further enhanced.
