Challenges for Education Quality Management
Both HEIs and academic communities are affected by global trends that pose many challenges. This raises dilemmas related to community building and the cooperation between academic community members, which requires the exchange of experience, knowledge and information on different levels. Therefore, it is necessary to discuss new approaches and methods to manage the learning and teaching process, as well as methods and tools that support the development of the academic community.

This edited volume book tackles this multifaceted phenomenon by combining diverse viewpoints of scholars and practitioners. It captures the nuances of different scientific disciplines, including management science, psychology and pedagogy. What distinguishes the book is its innovation, multidimensionality, interdisciplinarity and methodological diversity.

Building an Academic Community. Challenges for Education Quality Management shows the experiences of different HEIs struggling with current trends in the post-pandemic era such as the change of the university model with an emphasis on practical and competence learning and the technologization of the education process. It can be a valuable basis for future activities to develop the academic community and the quality of education at HEIs.
