Recommendations on the validation of non-formal university programmes

Apr 17, 2020

The present document lists the recommendations carried out within the validation framework of CONNECT, a Knowledge Alliance Erasmus+ project (2017-2019). The validation activities are strictly related to its main output, the Twin-Track Programme (TTP) that was designed and implemented in 5 countries of the Consortium: Spain, Denmark, Italy, Poland and the United Kingdom.

The first 10 recommendations are related to validation and general teaching in both curricular, academic, university-based context and the continuous professional learning context related to non-university teaching and training organisations. Recommendations 11 to 27 consist of more precise issues pointed by the consortium partners that might be seen as more detailed recommendations and guidelines for reflection and change in the practice-oriented teaching and training.

The Warsaw Forum was a conversation about audiences, the arts and democracy hosted by the City of Warsaw in September 2018. An invitation-only event, The Warsaw Forum gathered together researchers, cultural practitioners, activists, policy-makers, and decision makers representing different cultural disciplines from across the EU and further afield. The event was the result of collaboration on a number of European projects by different organisations, which now form the Steering Committee, and which collectively brought time, energy and experience to bear in bringing this event to fruition.

The present report represents an extract of the conversations had at the Warsaw Forum. The report is structured in 4 chapters, corresponding to the four themes of the forum: ‘Is the role of culture in society changing?’, ‘How do we understand the politics of cultural authority when thinking about audiences and public engagement?’, ‘What will cultural democracy mean in the C21st/next 10 years?’ and ‘What is the role of cultural policymakers in widening participation and promoting cultural democracy?’.
