Developing the Bologna Process in The Context of Empowering Teaching

Session Submission ID: EDUCCON2020-01

Definition and Cover of the Special Session

Bologna Process is a reform process aiming to create a European Higher Education Area. It is an unorthodox process created and maintained by 48 member countries in cooperation with many international organizations. Membership in the process is not based on any agreement between governments / states.

Papers published within the scope of the Bologna Process are not legally binding. The process is a formation in which every country participates with their free will and countries have the right to accept or not the targets stipulated by the Bologna Process. Citizens of the countries within the European Higher Education Area, which the Bologna Process aims to create, will be able to easily travel around Europe for the purpose of studying or working.

It aims to make Europe a popular spot both for higher education and job opportunities in the worlds. The most undesirable thing in the European Higher Education Area is to make the education systems of the member countries a uniform higher education system. The main target in the European Higher Education Area is to establish a balance between diversity and unity. The aim is for higher education systems to be comparable and compatible with each other while preserving their unique differences. In this way, it is planned to facilitate the transition from one country or higher education system to another and thus increase the mobility and employment of students and lecturers.
