EduLAB meeting 2017


The EduLAB meeting 2017 "Innovation in Teaching and Employability" will be hosted by the University of Lausanne, 30 November-1 December 2017.


Take a look at the preliminary programme (as of 12 September 2017)


Employability of graduates is a concern for all universities nowadays. The ministers of the countries involved in the Bologna Process have underlined the importance of the issue at the end of the 2015 meeting by defining “Fostering the employability of graduates throughout their working lives" as the goal for the next period.


The UNICA EduLAB 2017 will be devoted to the topic of employability of students and young graduates and will bring different perspectives (institutions, students, employers, EC) to set a wider context. During the meeting, the results of the development of the Bologna Process and the first results of EUA Trends 2018 survey will be discussed.


The second part of the EduLAB will be focus on pedagogical questions. In line with the UNICA goals and the EduLAB philosophy, this part will be hands-on oriented and will foster the exchange of practices among UNICA members. As the first step in the process, we invite the participants who wish to share one innovation that has been introduced at their university to increase employability to respond to the short “call for contributions” below by Monday, 30 0ctober to
