Successful Design of Student-Centered Learning and Instruction (SCLI) Ecosystems in the European Higher Education Area
A keynote at the XX Anniversary of the Bologna Process

Implementation of student-centered learning and instruction (SCLI) environments has been a repeatedly affirmed objective in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). Yet, the implementation of SCLI has been hampered by the ambiguities in the definition of SCLI, its key elements and the indicators to demonstrate presence of SCLI in an institution. Recognizing the problems with implementation of SCLI in EHEA, this keynote first discusses the key misconceptions of SCL and submits that framework for SCLI ecosystems by indication the key elements and the indicators at the institutional and departmental level. The keynote draws on the author’s prior work on SCL policies in the EHEA and the contributions to the forthcoming Routledge Handbook on Student-Centered Learning and Instruction in Higher Education edited by Sabine Hoidn and Manja Klemenčič.
