Engaging with UK Parliament: A Guide for UK Universities

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

As highlighted in the 2013 report to the European Commission on 'Improving the quality of teaching and learning in Europe's higher education institutions - "Our higher education system is a key building block of our democratic societies." Reflected in changes in the higher education sector including an increased focus on the development of 'personal values', 'active citizenship' and being able to 'explore complex real-world problems', the UK Quality Code (Part A) also incorporates, for example, a greater emphasis on the significance of interdisciplinarity, the relevance of understanding 'international contexts', and the value of actively considering the role of subjects in 'society, environment and culture.'
