We are happy to announce the start of a new project that IBC-M is part of. The kick-off meeting of the MAGNET (Managerial and GoverNance Enhancement through Teaching) took place in the city of Alexandroupoli, Greece from 16th to 18th February 2023. IBC-M was represented by our lecturer Medina Braha who is the project coordinator from IBC-M’s side. This meeting was also linked with the Conference of Democritus University of Thrace’s Center of Teaching and Learning (CTL) titled “Learning Cycles in University Pedagogy” held on the 18th of February.
MAGNET is a consortium of 12 HEI partner institutions from 8 WB countries. University Pedagogy, mostly enhanced through the operation of Centers for Teaching and Learning (CTL), is a main pillar for the implementation of the European Higher Education Area. MAGNET aims to develop a network for University Pedagogy in the Western Balkans states, through know-how transfer from countries that have CTLs under operation to all partner countries. The main objectives include the know-how transfer, the establishment of CTLs, the production of educational material, and the creation of a sustainable network BALKANETUP (Balkan Network for University Pedagogy).
This meeting’s main contribution was also the launching of our BALAKANETUP, which is of major interest to our MAGNET project.
