International peer-learning events

The peer-learning events of the LMRO Partnership Initiative are designed for policy makers and practitioners to review innovative national policies, identify enablers and barriers to innovative institutional practices, and discuss key findings from research.

The aim is to (i) facilitate peer learning, (ii) identify key questions relevant for policy making and the adoption and upscaling of effective institutional practices that require further attention, and, thereby, (iii) stimulate and contribute to an international policy debate.

The online events gather an international audience of higher education policy stakeholders, including policy makers, leaders of higher education institutions, teaching and administrative staff, and representatives of quality assurance bodies, industry, student unions, and higher education researchers.
