eucen is launching in 2020 a new initiative: A full month of ULLL presentations.
We invite you to join us throughout November – participate in an open activity every day!
The eucen ULLL Open Fora will offer one open and free activity from Monday to Friday every day during November.
Every week you can attend presentation about a different topic:
Week 1 (02-06 November): The Role of University Lifelong Learning in Learning Cities
Week 2 (09-13 November): Higher Education Work-based learning in a Changing World
Week 3 (16-20 November): Digital learning in continuing education – The aftermath of COVID-19
Week 4 (23-27 November): Bridging active citizenship and University Lifelong Learning
On Monday 30 November there will be a special session: A dialogue between eucen and Utrecht University (hosts of the 2021 eucen conference).

We have all faced the special spring 2020. I hope you are all well and not completely exhausted by the adaptations we had to face.
The fall will bring new challenges. As most probably social distanciation restrictions will not have completely disappeared by then, “normal” conditions for teaching and learning will not be back. Blended learning might be an interesting answer. We need to start tackling this issue now.
As all universities had to quickly adapt their courses into Emergency Remote Teaching, it is now necessary to offer more appropriate Distance Learning, oriented not only on the teaching side, but also on the process of learning of students.
I want to forward to you two types of information that may be of help:
A study on what universities plan for the fall. It is based on 579 institutions (among which 529 des USA but also France, Finland, Canada…) and consider issues such as support for students, training for teachers, exams.
And a compilation of training on digital teaching and learning that our colleague Ebba Ossiannillsson has shared with me and agreed to share on eucen eCoP. (ressources for training on e-learning EO).
I hope it helps.
Take good care of you, your family and your students!

How to survive in critical times?
University Lifelong Learning 4.0
The COVID-19 has impacted the World with surprising speed. Universities have had to adapt very quickly to the new reality. Digital learning has had to be adopted in order to offer the possibility to finish the academic year. Would you like to explore with eucen, UPCEA and AAACE how some HEIs have reacted? Do not miss our online Seminar on Thursday 28 May 2020 from 15:00CET
Participation in this seminar is FREE for members of eucen, UPCEA and AAACE. Non-members can join with a small contribution of €50.
If you have questions or comments, contact us!

The eucen‘s proposal UniLab (From university to labour market in the 21st Century: a step forward in work-based placements) has been successful! We will start our work 1st Jan 2020 with University Pompeu Fabra, IMC Fachhochschule Krems, University of Lille (EU partners) and four universities in Russia, two in Belarus and two in Azerbaijan.
The project expects to develop university-business collaboration one step further and to find ways to offer students a brighter future in the labour market thanks to WPL strategies. It will develop the university career centres and create an international network for collaboration and exchange of students.
This CBHE Joint Project has a budget of around 800.000EUR and 36 months of time for its completion. We are looking forward to working in this new project!
There is a short description of UniLab at http://www.eucen.eu/projects/unilab
We will keep you updated with news about this project.
