University Pedagogy, mostly enhanced through the operation of Centers for Teaching and Learning (CTL), is a main pillar for the implementation of the European Higher Education Area. MAGNET aims to develop a network for University Pedagogy in the Western Balkans states, through know-how transfer from countries that have CTLs under operation to all partner countries. Main objectives include the know-how transfer, the establishment of CTLs, the production of educational material and the creation of a sustainable network BALKANETUP (Balkan Network for University Pedagogy).
This meeting’s main contribution was also the launching of BALAKANETUP, which is of major interest for the MAGNET project.
