How University Faculty Understands Bologna: The Case of Lithuania

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The purpose of the paper is to outline the practices and challenges of Lithuanian higher education institutions in relation to the Bologna process. We answer the question how Bologna process has been translated in the Lithuania’s higher education institutions and how they have been acted upon? This paper aims to share the insights gained from eight case studies of academic departments in five Lithuanian higher education institutions about their understanding of the Bologna Process and the perceptions of its implementation. In particular, we were interested in exploring how much the key dimensions of the structural and substantial Bologna goals have been implemented in the academic departments of Lithuanian higher education institutions with regard to quality assurance, mobility and ECTS, three-cycle degree structures, employability, and life-long learning. One of the findings from five case studies in 2008 suggests that there are different interpretations of Bologna related reforms at the institutional level in Lithuania. While interviewed institutional managers are aware of the Bologna process, half of the interviewed academic staff (computer science and humanities) is largely unaware about it. The findings raise further questions about the institutional adaptation in Lithuanian higher education in the context of national and supra-national policy initiatives.
