EUROSTUDENT 8 RESEARCHERS’ FORUM
APRIL 18-20, 2023, ST. JULIANS, MALTA
The EUROSTUDENT 8 Researchers’ Forum opens a platform for the participating countries to exchange best practices in national implementation of the EUROSTUDENT survey as well as to present and discuss EUROSTUDENT results and analysis strategies and initiate and foster collaboration opportunities. The Forum will gather representatives from all national research teams involved in conducting the EUROSTUDENT 8 survey at the national level. Besides the members of the EUROSTUDENT 8 national research teams, the project consortium kindly invites researchers and academics from the wider community of higher education and European students’ representatives to contribute and attend the E8 Researchers’ Forum.
We welcome national and international comparative analyses preferably with EUROSTUDENT data but also based on other data sources as long as the topics fit the EUROSTUDENT context.
Topics of interest include:
Mental health and well-being – Contributions on new policy developments and opportunities, considering the mental health and well-being on the social dimension of higher education, are welcome.
Digitalisation of teaching, learning, and student life – Contributions related to digital literacy, artificial intelligence, digital transformation, networked learning, digital development, and design in relation to the European Year of Skills are welcome.
Effects of the Covid-19 pandemic – Contributions related to the effects of Covid-19 on enrolment declines, motivation, quality of teaching, balancing responsibilities, and financing as well as relationships between students’ housing situation and mental health in the context of Covid-19 are welcome.
Discrimination experiences – Contributions in relation to racial, ethnic and religious discrimination, accessibility challenges, disability, financial discrimination, open education opportunities, as well as gender equality issues and unequal access to higher education are welcome.
Open track – Contributions on all the other topics that do not focus on the Topical Modules of the EUROSTUDENT 8 (the previous four topics). For example, characteristics of student populations, students’ social background, access and transition into and within higher education, types and modes of study, students’ time budget, future plans and assessment, students’ employment and paid work, students’ resources and expenses, students’ housing situation, or international mobility.
