Developing Degree Programs

On this page you will find all the information related to the development, modification and modularization of degree programs.

At a 1999 conference in Bologna, the EU member states issued a joint declaration aiming to establish a unified European model of higher education. This agree­ment marked a paradigm shift: The Diplom and Magister programs were replaced by bachelor's and master's programs. Courses are now grouped into modules, and academic progress is tracked by means of a credit point system (ECTS). Compara­bility, transfer­ability, and trans­parency are the primary goals of the Bologna Process.

Modules: Module Descriptions, Handbook and Module Management

In connection with the Bologna Process, a new set of terms and concepts has become established at Euro­pean universi­ties, including module description, workload, ECTS (credit points), and desired learning outcome. Outcome-based module design - that is, the develop­ment of modules centered on learning out­comes - enables teaching staff to devise creative approaches to their topic areas, both didacti­cally and in terms of aca­demic con­tent.
