Project Description

The reason, motivation, goals and outcomes of the PESHES project are connected with the two key documents in Serbia in this area: Strategy for Education Development in Serbia up to 2020 and the adopted Action Plan for Implementation of the Strategy for Education Development in Serbia up to 2020.

The project is focused on the actions aimed at introducing quality indicators and implementation instruments in higher education, and partially also on the actions aimed at strengthening the public responsibility of higher education institutions for the quality of higher education, improving and implementing the “Student-centered learning” concept and improving cooperation with employers and businesses.

The Role of CPN

The primary role of the CPN in the PESHES project is to communicate and disseminate project results by managing the work package 6 (WP6). A project website and various promotional materials have been created for all those who are professionally interested in the reform of university education and further development of contemporary higher education programmes and concepts.

In addition to managing project communications, the Center has participated in the work of the other work packages, preparing materials and defining indicators, and took part in all project meetings and other activities.
