Embedding EU values in teaching and learning in higher education

Project number: 2023-1-NL01-KA220-HED-000157332
Period: 1. 11. 2023 – 31. 10. 2025


Interview with doc. Houžvička


Current research has shown that the integration of EU values in higher
education is a key factor in the prosperity of society in Europe. The
purpose of the Emb-ED EU project is two-fold. First, we aim to design
and develop a framework for the integration of EU values in higher
education. Second, we aim to create professional development
opportunities for higher education lecturers and academics on the role
of the EU and their own role in transmitting EU values among their
learners through their teaching practice. So we believe that all the
project results will support this overarching goal, through innovative
methodologies of co-creation (design thinking) and the participation of
different groups of stakeholders, such as university teachers,
researchers, students and policy makers.
