29 29 DEFINING PHE HAPHE project

30 30 An Important Distinction Education with a Professional Orientation Education with a Professional Orientation Institutions specialising in

31 31 A definitional attempt DRAFT Professional higher education (PHE) offers particularly intense integration with the world of work in all aspects (including teaching, learning, research and governance) at all levels of the EQF for higher education and lifelong learning. It thus enhances a great diversity of opportunities, employability, qualifications and innovation pathways for the benefit learners and society. The intensity of the integration with the world of work, in all aspects and at all levels of the EQF, expresses in that fact that PHE is HE with strong focus on application through profession oriented E&T, combining phases of work and study, employability, cooperation with employers, practical relevant knowledge, research and scholarship.

32 32 Possible Differentiators curriculum development content learning methodology learning context staff research policy & strategy DRAFT

33 33 Questions How does PHE differentiate itself in each of these areas? What is the core, “minimum” level of ‘professionalised’ nature of these characteristics? Is there any “excellence” level? Can we use them to create a diversity model? DRAFT

34 34 AREACORE CHARACTERISTICS Methods of curriculum development Curriculum is developed by academia Based on external environment analysis Collaboration with stakeholders in particular with the world of work Curriculum is aligned to the future needs of practice context Content for learning and study Learning outcomes – knowledge, skills & competence The learning content is productively integrating theory and practice - examples, case studies, latest research/trends and references from both perspectives. Learning Methodology Strong representation of the world of work in the learning design Creation of situated learning environments, e.g. through simulation based learning, case studies, scenario based learning. Reflection of theory in practise / job experience Teaching in collaboration with external professionals Draft Characteristics of PHE Teaching & Learning DRAFT

35 35 AREACORE CHARACTERISTICS Learning space Reflection of theory in practise / job experience Includes significant practice phases Academic and Teaching “Staff” and Education Professionals At the program level the team show a good balance of academic background and relevant experiences from the world of work Update of experience Profile and experience of key staff Career Path of Academic and Teaching “Staff” / Education Professionals Key academic / teaching staff and education professionals have practical experience Draft Characteristics of PHE Teaching & Learning DRAFT

36 36 AREACORE CHARACTERISTICS The Research Agenda Agenda is informed by the priorities of the world of work Shorter research periods Market driven Impact in SMEs Research Outcomes Research outcomes seek to be directly applicable and to be used to innovate products/services, processes and procedures CommentsProfession-led Up to industrial/professional doctorate Intensity relevant to level of education Draft Characteristics of PHE Research Should be an integral part of sustainable PHE although it might differ from level to level and is not implemented in all institutions, yet. PHE will advance knowledge through research and scholarship and disseminate this knowledge to meet the needs of society and enterprise DRAFT

37 37 AREACORE CHARACTERISTICS Policy & Strategy Institutional policies and prospectus are defined by world of work in collaboration with internal stakeholders. Draft Characteristics of PHE Policy & Strategy Other issues (quality assurance, staff development, management of resources, strategic planning, policies..) are cross-cutting and should follow general principles DRAFT

38 38 Next Steps Finalise definition, characteristics Embark upon wide consultation with stakeholders –National seminars –European policy seminars –Final Conference Quality criteria & parameters
