Development of Training Network for Improving Education in Energy Efficiency
Start Date: October 2012
Duration: 36 months
Brief information and main objectives:
This proposal aims to prioritize: modernization of curricula with 3 cycle structure, ETCS and degree recognition in the Teacher training and education science in Physical science (BY), engineering and engineering trades (Belarus, Azerbaijan, Kosovo). The project involves higher education institutions from Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland and Belgium as well as from such partner countries: Belarus, Kosovo and Azerbaijan. Development of the curricular reform in Engineering and Engineering trades are highlighted as a priority in all partner countries.
The wider objective is to enhance networking among higher education institutions across the partner countries and EU member states for improving the education in the field of the energy efficiency enhancement , energy saving and use of renewable sources of energy.
The project aims such specific objectives:
To enhance the quality and relevance of higher education in the partner countries by bringing together education excellence and best practice in the field of the energy efficiency enhancement, energy saving and use of renewable sources of energy field (declared field) on the base of creation/ modernization of study programs ;
To make compatible/unified curricula for improving the education and expertise of target groups (students/ master students/ and academic/teacher staff ) in the declared field;
To confirm teaching/learning approaches (lectures, practice classes, didactic materials etc) and tools (equipment, hardware/software, user, methodological guides, manuals etc.) for improving the target groups education and expertise
To create electronic libraries by directions(enhancement of energy efficiency, energy saving, energy effective materials, use of renewable sources).
Realization of the project will allow creating Joint Educational Platform as a system of developed/improved compatible education tools and didactic materials needed to transfer experience of EU Universities to Partner Countries' Universities.
