The social appreciation of the scientific knowledge that is produced by research may contribute to ground and direct the design of those policies, in particular the ones concerning the development and sustainability of educational innovations in HE. Hence, the organization of an International Seminar (IS), entitled “Innovative academic practices in higher education: How to make them more sustainable?”, aims to contribute to the need to reflect, disseminate and look for ways to improve the sustainability of the results from research focused on educational innovation in HE.
The aims of the IS are:
a) to reflect on the sustainability of educational innovations in Higher Education, in particular of those that are developed during the context of funded national projects in Portuguese Public Higher Education Institutions;
b) to disseminate educational innovations in Higher Education, in particular in the areas of social sciences/education, natural and exact sciences, and engineering;
c) to discuss possibilities to enhance the collaboration between teachers and researchers who are interested in Innovations in Higher Education (e.g., establishment of an international academic network of reflection & action in educational innovations in HEI).
