Modules, credit points, shorter courses –
institutes of higher education in many countries are currently having to reinvent themselves and radically revise their programs of study.
Where the humanist educational ideal once prevailed, the academic landscape will soon be dominated by the structured framework of the new bachelor and master courses. But the moves towards more highly structured programs of study have their disadvantages; in particular, curricular components fostering cross-curricular cultural competence are being squeezed out. Against this background, 14 universities from Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland, Portugal, France, and Switzerland have taken the initiative and joined forces to develop proposals on how the efficient communication of disciplinary knowledge and skills can be complemented by the provision of cultural education. A conference hosted by the initiators in Berlin will present the roadmap for the future development of the alma mater – leading scientists and representatives of educational policy-making and management will address the questions raised by the Bologna process in round-table discussions.
