The increasing diversity of student populations, the growing expectations from labourmarkets and society as well as the increased responsibility of higher education institutions challenge them to enhance their educational quality. These developments have stimulated a number of organisationalresponses, among others, the establishment of Centresfor Excellence of Teaching & Learning (CETLs). The conference will address the functioning of CETLs with the following questions:
- What types of CETLS exist across Europe?
- How effective are CETLs?
- Do CETLs lead to higher quality levels?
- What other quality enhancement instruments do higher education institutions use?
