Working on the Bologna Declaration: Promoting Integrated Curriculum Development and Fostering Conceptual Change
Colet, Nicole Rege; Durand, Natacha
International Journal for Academic Development, v9 n2 p167-179 Nov 2004
This article analyses ongoing work at the University of Geneva to reform programs to fit the principles of the Bologna Declaration. Analysis of the national context addresses how Swiss universities are currently building a Swiss area of higher education along similar lines to the European Area of Higher Education. Focus is put on the role of the faculty development centre of the university in the process of renewing curricula. The article concludes that implementation of the Bologna Declaration has given leverage for faculty development initiatives and a new integrated conception of curriculum development, although issues of senior academic leadership influence the outcomes.
