"Didactica Nova" – a Challenge for the Academic Curriculum

The concept of “totally alienated students” has evolved, in the last 40 years, focusing our attention towards what we can call ”alienated education practices”. Lately, higher education institutions are getting visible results in their efforts to raise the quality of the education process by implementing various measures to determine students to be active participants in their own learning. Celebrating 150 years since its establishment, the University of Bucharest launched a challenge for the academia, calling for innovation in the curriculum design and delivery. It aims to foster an update in the curricula, in order to improve the teaching methods and the learning process in Romanian universities. The declared objectives of the project are oriented towards promoting a continuous improvement of the teaching methods to match younger generations’ changing profile. Specific arguments are presented in the article, in an attempt to build the basis for a theoretical construction with meaningful applications to be used in the next academic year. Ref.: Vlada, M.
