Objet : Possibility to apply for a Tuning Short-Term Visits Research Scholarship. Deadline: 21 May 2017

Dear All,

We are happy to announce that Deusto International Tuning Academy will be giving 10 scholarships for 1-month research visits to Bilbao in 2017-2018 academic year.

The research projects we are looking for will focus on one of these topics:

1) analysing and evaluating the impact produced by the Tuning projects at the level of particular higher education programmes/institutions/ countries/regions;
2) approaches to learning, teaching and assessment of generic competences – concrete examples of what is done within higher education degrees accompanied by enhancement proposals based on both theoretical and empirical data;
3) staff development initiatives that facilitate implementation of competence-based approach – critical evaluation of their appropriateness and how well they meet the needs; what else seems to be needed;
4) curriculum reform and incorporation of Tuning approach in institutional and national policies.

The four-week stay will give the selected candidates the opportunity to prepare an article for an international peer-reviewed journal (Tuning Journal for Higher Education).

Please find more details about the Call herehttp://tuningacademy.org/ short-term-visits-call/

We will be happy to receive your application.

We would also be grateful if you could forward this message to all those who could be interested in applying.

On behalf of Deusto International Tuning Academy Team,
