"Is that the artist you
are talking about?" "No, I am referring to the CHAGAL curriculum
guidelines which have been developed to improve the situation of international
students at European universities"
The central workshop of the CHAGAL Set-up project took place on the 21-23 April in Graz, Austria. The Materials page has been updated with the workshop report, which can be downloaded in English, in pdf format.
The Chagal Set-up team met in Graz on 27-28 January to discuss the programme of the ECML central workshop planned for 21-23 April, and the format of the final ECML publication. The workshop aims to promote the benefits of student-centred approaches, to exchange and discuss examples of good practice and to develop a plan for further networking to disseminate the Chagal curriculum guidelines to practitioners and policy makers.
The Good Practice Form has been developed in English and German and is now ready to be sent by email to prospective workshop participants nominated by their National Nominating Authorities, with a request for its completion and return prior to the workshop. A cover letter has also been prepared in English and German, describing the outline of the three-day workshop programme and will be sent to participants together with the Chagal Curriculum Guidelines booklet and flyer. We are excited by the prospect of meeting with the participants to exchange experiences, learn from one another and to plan the way forward.
The structure and content of the ECML final publication were agreed. It will be on CD ROM, with an executive summary or introduction, extracts from the ‘Chagal’ booklet, namely, Part I, Chapter 3.4: Didactic Principles, Chapter 4.2-4.4: Chagal Pilot Projects, and Part II, Curriculum Guidelines. The examples of good practice collected from participants at the April workshop, as well as the outcomes of the workshop, will also form an important part of the publication. The publication will be in English and German.
The CHAGAL-Set Up team and participants from Hungary,
Ireland, Latvia, Poland and the United Kingdom had an expert meeting on
July 9-10, 2004 at the ECML premises in Graz.
The CHAGAL-SET UP team had its first preparation meeting
on April 2-3, 2004 at the ECML premises in Graz. We discussed the CHAGAL-SET
UP Questionnaire development and distribution and heard a report on the
number of filled-in questionnaires received. Unfortunately, the response
to the questionnaires was poor, therefore we decided to change strategy.
