The International Summer School of University College Cork, Cork from 5 - 9 July 2010 will feature an experienced range of presenters addressing topics focused on the Bologna action lines. Ireland has been very successful in implementing the action lines of the Bologna Process, evidenced by the country’s position at the top of the Bologna Scorecard in 2007, and its second place in 2009. Ireland is also one of the few European countries that has successfully established and implemented a National Qualifications framework.
Key people involved in assisting the implementation of Bologna in Ireland such as Dr Declan Kennedy (author of International bestseller Writing and Using Learning Outcomes), Dr Jim Murray (Chief Executive of Ireland’s National Qualifications Framework), Dr Norma Ryan (Irish Bologna expert), Professor Áine Hyland (member of EUA’s Institutional Evaluation Team) and Dr. Richard Thorn (Director of National Project on Flexible Learning and Research) amongst others, will share their experiences and advise you on the best strategies to facilitate effective implementation.
The International Summer School is targeted at policy makers, senior managers, lecturers, course co-ordinators and educational developers in Bologna countries and countries aligning with Bologna. It is hoped to provide accreditation in terms of ECTS credits for those who complete this course.
