Temple in Transylvania

Charles Temple, professor of education, presented a workshop last week on the topic of service learning at the Scoala de Vara Academica hosted by Babes Bolyai University in Cluj, Transylvania, Romania. The summer school was supported by BBU, by the University of Nevada-Reno, and by the Open Society Inistute, and featured presentations on changes in university curricula and instructional practices occasioned by the integration of standards and practices for higher education within Europe. The integration effort has been formalized in a series of conventions named for the host cities: the Salamanca Accords, the Bologna Accords, and the Prague Accords. A new set of accords will arise from a convention to be held in Cluj in 2004.
