The project is developed in the framework of the ERASMUS+ Key Action 3: Forward Looking Programmes the European Commission has funded the International Tuning Academy (TUNING Projects)
Coordinator: University of Groningen
Relevant UNICA working group: EduLab
UNICA's role: Member of Advisory Board
Aims and general information:
The project intends to develop the infrastructure that will eventually make it possible to test bachelor and master students’ performance Europe-wide across a range of fields in a way that satisfies the needs of the various stakeholders in the European higher education community.
The project intends to develop Qualifications Reference Frameworks and Assessment Reference Frameworks in the five academic fields (Business Administration, Information Engineering/ICT, International Relations, Medicine and Performing and Fine Arts). These will use the same methodology, but they will be tailored to the characteristics of each subject area and domain, taking into account the diversity of missions, orientations and profiles of universities in Europe and their various degree programmes.
These frameworks will facilitate the development of diagnostic tests which will allow university management, academics and students to understand whether students are achieving internationally defined levels of competences which prepare them for their role 2 in society in terms of personal development, civic, social and cultural engagement (citizenship) and employability, while meeting agreed academic standards.
