Impact of the European Harmonisation Process on the Educational Development of University Teachers in Spanish Universities
Vizcarro, Carmen; Yaniz, Concepcion
International Journal for Academic Development, v9 n2 p181-193 Nov 2004
In this paper, the impact of the creation of the European Area of Higher Education (EAHE) on Spanish tertiary education is analysed from the standpoint of educational improvement and academic development. First, the recent history of the HE system in Spain is summarised in order to understand the context in which this reform is taking place. Then, an overview is offered of some measures taken at national and regional levels to conform to the reform, followed by a description of the specific measures taken in two different universities to bring about educational change. Finally, we elaborate on and draw some conclusions regarding the change process emerging from the creation of the EAHE. The main point of the paper is to describe an emerging reform process focusing on how notions of change and organisational leadership influence teaching and learning, and to offer some reflections on this.
