Description of the project

Timing of the projec: start date 01/12/2013, end date 30/11/2016

Duration: 36 months

Specific objectives of the project:

1.Creating multidisciplinary curricula in regional sustainable development (RSD) on the basis of eco-human synergetic interaction for MSc, PhD, LLL students of engineering;

2.Integrating e-learning & advanced infra-structure for amplifying PC universities training capacity;

3.Developing RSD academic-industrial-business

–governmental

–public network.

Tempus programme objectives, themes and priorities addressed by the project:

1.To promote the reform and modernization of higher education in the partner countries

2.To enhance the quality and relevance of higher education in the partner countries

3.To build up the capacity of higher education institutions in the partner countries and the EU, in particular for international cooperation and for a permanent modernisation process, and to assist them in opening themselves up to society at large, the world of work and the wider world

4.To foster the reciprocal development of human resources

5.To enhance networking among higher education institutions and research institutions across the Partner Countries and EU Member States.

6.To enhance mutual understanding between peoples and cultures of the EU and of the partner countries How project addresses the priorities mentioned above in relation to Ukraine: Curriculum reform: modernization ofcurriculum with 3 cycle structure, ECTS & degree recognition in the subject area of Engineering and engineering trades..Proposal of developing curriculum for training MSc, PhD, LLL students of engineering in RSD is directly related to UA policy of reforming national education for the integration into European education space. System development of human training, e-training resources & advanced infrastructure are aimed at amplifying UA universities training capacity. National priorities of development quality introduction, partnership with enterprises, LLL & qualification framework are also present.

Academic discipline:Engineering and engineering trades (broad programmes)

The focus of the project: The project is focused on the development of innovative curriculum for training new generation of engineers as“agents of positive changes” in regional development based on synergetic eco-human interaction and advanced technologies.

Summary of the Project:

Project“Regional sustainable development on the basis of eco-human synergetic interaction (multidisciplinary training course for MSc, PhD and LLL students in engineering)”

–SEHSI is aimed at providing positive changes in regional sustainable development (RSD) based on cognitive and personality growth of “agents of positive changes” by developing eco

-humanistic knowledge, thinking & behavior. Specific project objectives are: 1) creating RSD multidisciplinary curricula for students in engineering; 2) integrating e-learning & advanced infrastructure for amplifying UA universities training capacity; 3) developing academic-industrial-business

–governmental RSD network. The following outputs & outcomes are expected: 1) human resources (25 trainers) development on the basis of RSD competence profiles within training of the trainers’program at EU institutions; 2) training resources development: RSD methodology (synergetic cognitive-personality development of students within engineering training process), curricula (8 modules of 120 ECTS based on metacognitive, professional, communicative competences profile); training packages (30 RSD course books, CD with RSD lectures in PP format, CD with e-tests & inventories for RSD course evaluation & self-control); 3) e-training resources development: RSD e-training package (30 RSD e-books, platforms providing environment for training &multidisciplinary multinational project teamwork; self-developing database of RSD training materials); SEHSI e-net integrating training-dissemination-management activities (RSD training e-center, management e-center, e-expo center); 4)200 MSc, PhD and LLL students in engineering trained within RSD pilot training; 5-8) SEHSI resources development for evaluation (methodology, e-tools, 15 evaluations), dissemination (methodology, project site, e-expo center, 26 events),sustainability (RSD network, database, course accreditation, financial plan); management (strategy, e-database & e-center)
