Part-Time Study and E-Learning in Europe: Insights from Erasmus+ PT&SCHE Project

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Flexible delivery is often seen as an integral part of e-learning and lifelong learning. In some countries students learning at a distance or while working have equal status with on-campus students. Currently there is no agreed definition for ‘part-time’ studies across Europe. Part-time studies can refer to notional time spent learning, number of credits, time allowed for completing studies, or to funding arrangements.
In this paper we consider part-time and e-learning in Higher Education in Europe with a particular focus on Serbia. Results from surveys with private sector employers, students and university teaching staff in Serbia are presented. While all agreed on part-time studies being introduced, students’ and staff’s views differed in terms of how to implement this new route to higher education qualifications.
