Corpus-involved Education and Learning in European Universities

By: Shuo Zhao  

A central tendency in these innovations is basing corpus on the educational needs of students in European universities. Corpus-involved education and learning optimizes the learning process of students, creating a stimulating and active learning environment. A logical step in placing students at the center of their education is involving them in quality control, organization, and development of curricula based on corpus learning. Opportunities for student participation in curriculum planning and organization are given, including advantages and possible disadvantages of corpus involvement. Implications for European private university faculties wishing to incorporate students in their corpus organization are discussed to improve students’ input. Present developments in European universities increasingly focus on the central role of students in education and learning. A logical step in these developments is to give students responsibilities not just in the learning process but also in curriculum education and in the management of universities. Students in higher education, after all, are adults. Corpus-involved systems in quality control prove students to be distinctly capable of assuming shared responsibilities in management and organization of education and learning. The most important action students must take is to organize them in learning process. Combining corpus is a certain means of upgrading the quality of student input. Second, students must be prepared to participate in the evaluations provided by the teaching staff. They must also make themselves available for education and training in universities. Finally, students should take every opportunity to voice their opinions and ideas by means of a corpus-involved system.
