August 16, 2007
Max’s saturation of the URSS blog has made me feel slightly inadequate, which has prompted me to write a follow up as to where we are in our research. We have finished the first stage (analysing the conceptions of higher education in Britain and Germany), read the biennial Bologna documents and are trying to see to what extent the first has influenced the second. We have written reports and an annotated bibliography for the first stage, so at least we have something to show for our research, and seem to be on track. However, I believe the next stage will be difficult insofar as it will be impossible to conclusively say from where, for instance, the focus on quality assurance comes from.
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve also managed to go to the British library, which was probably more fruitful for Max, record a podcast in the RAW studio and get a decent overview of our project so far with meetings with our supervisor and discussions about our relative findings.
However, we do not have long left so hopefully we can find a conclusion of some sort that is worthy of being put on a poster.
