This article includes reports of meetings held in Dublin, Bonn, and Strasbourg of member State representatives of the Council of Europe. The first meeting discussed problem areas relating to the access to higher education, in particular the implications of the increasing admission restrictions and the diversification of postsecondary education. Other items examined included student participation in university affairs, research into higher education, cooperation between universities in Europe, the project for a European Tele-University and the creation of the League of European Research Libraries. The aim of the second meeting was to study one of the existing national information and documentation centers working in the field of equivalence certificates, degrees, and diplomas and to draft proposals for the improvement of equivalence information and for future Council-of-Europe action concerning the mutual recognition of certificates, degrees, and diplomas. The discussion of the third meeting was concentrated upon current experiments in Europe with regard to new teaching and examination methods. Different aspects of the question were examined in 3 working groups: resistance to changes; training teachers in new methods; and connections between new teaching and assessment methods on the one hand and the organization of higher education on the other.
