Seminar „Course Development and Lifelong Learning“

On February 15th – 16th 2007, WUS Austria successfully held its seminar „Course Development and Lifelong Learning“ at Hotel Grand in Sarajevo. The seminar was officially opened by His Excellency, the Austrian Ambassador to B&H, dr. Werner Almhofer after whom openning speeches were also delivered by dr. Izet Bijelonja, Vice-rector at University of Sarajevo and Mag. Dino Mujkić, WUS Austria Regional Manager in B&H.


The Seminar aimed at bringing lifelong learning into the process of Bologna implementation at Universities in B&H. It addressed the challenges of higher education institutions in providing lifelong learning opportunities for all and in designing targeted professional development programs. In that sense, the seminar proved to be in line with all activities being implemented within the frame of the Program “Support to Higher Education in B&H in 2005/2007” financed by Austrian Development Cooperation.

Based on questionnaire results and participants' feedback, the seminar - including the expert presentations and organization process – was evaluatated as highly satisfactory.
