For the fifth time we are pleased to announce the Congreso Internacional de Docencia Universitaria e Innovación (CIDUI – International Congress of University Teaching and Innovation), encouraged by the increasing participation in and excellent response to the previous editions and the richness of the exchange of innovative experiences in university teaching that took place in 2000, 2002, 2004 and 2006.
Higher education is currently experiencing some major changes. As part of these changes, universities are making strategic decisions on teaching policy. Adaptation to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), the new curriculums, the demand for accreditation and the general desire for quality teaching are just some of the factors that may bring about new opportunities for achange in the culture of teaching. .
At the 5th CIDUI, we aim to continue to foster improvements in higher education and innovation. We hope the event will enable us to take new steps in creating forums for debate and exchange of opinion so that new ideas and perspectives on higher education in the knowledge society may emerge.
We are aware of the multidimensional nature of quality teaching. Therefore, we are inviting you to participate in this academic event, at which we shall be concentrating our efforts on respecting ideological and methodological pluralism as we aim to highlight the central role of innovative teaching in the different areas of scientific knowledge.
