ECOLHE intends to build bridges and share knowledge between HE institutions and associations with the following aims:

- to produce and validate a set of new online Quality Assurance Standards able to consider the qualitative dimension for basic studies of teaching interactions inside online environments;

- to enhance LLL in HE through a focus on professionalization of teachers, so that they can effectively respond to and operate in an ever-changing context that demands engagement beyond the traditional concept of university education;

- to spread good practice at European level

 The duration of the project is three years and the consortium consists from 6 EU partner countries:  Italy, Spain, Ireland, Greece, Cyprus and Finland.
