Centre for Higher Education Futures (CHEF) invites you to a panel discussion between three parties with expertise in the Danish higher education system: The policy level, represented by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science, the institutional level, represented by experts on teaching and learning in higher education and students, represented by the Danish Student Confederation.

Recent research has identifed a conflict between demands that students complete their studies within a fixed timescale and that they engage in independent learning.

The purpose of this panel discussion is to explore this conflict in relation to the concept of study intensity that was added to the Danish universities’ development contracts with the Ministry of Higher Education for 2015-2017.

Speakers and members of the expert panel:
• Jens Storm, Ministry of Higher Education and Science 
• Lars Ulriksen, University of Copenhagen 
• Ane Qvortrup, University of Southern Denmark 
• Sana M. Doost, the Danish Student Confederation (Danske Studerendes Fællesråd)

The panel discussion is hosted by Laura Louise Sarauw and Søren S. E. Bengtsen from Aarhus University.
