Ukraine and the Bologna Process: A Case Study of the Impact of the Bologna Process on Ukrainian State Institutions
Kovtun, Olena; Stick, Sheldon
Higher Education in Europe, v34 n1 p91-103 Apr 2009
This paper discusses the results of a case study exploring perceptions of selected administrators and instructors at a Ukrainian state institution regarding the effectiveness of the Bologna Process at their institution. Data were collected from focus group interviews with five volunteer instructors involved in the implementation process. The findings indicate that the success of the new initiative was hindered by: centralized administration; insufficient training; scarce resources; participants' attachment to the old system; the perceived decreased quality of education; and loss of tradition. Recommendations are presented for other institutions experiencing a similar transition, keeping in mind their individual history, culture, location, financial resources, students and staff.
