Accessibility and harmonisation of higher education in Central Asia through modernisation and curriculum development (Aсademica)
Registration number: — 561553-EPP-1-2015-1-BG-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP
The aim of the project is to bring together European higher education institutions, which have innovative teaching methods and provide extensive international experience of excellence, and partner higher education institutions from Central Asia (CA), which have a need for the same advances, practices and experiences.
The specific challenges/problems of Region 7 Central Asia (CA) will be addressed by ensuring accessibility and harmonisation of higher education in CA through modernisation of curricula and implementation of the ACADEMICA project, which aims to promote voluntary convergence with EU experience in engineering studies.
The innovative nature lies in:
- Innovative methodology: ACADEMICA trainings involve the integration of methodology and content, which would provide lecturers with cross-curricular and core competencies and skills necessary for their active inclusion in the global digital learning and teaching space.
- ICT-enhanced learning opportunities: providing more flexible access to ICT-supported learning opportunities;
- Modernised university curricula in engineering with up-to-date content and integrated modern technology-based approaches.
- Establishing a system of transnational cooperation between universities and the business community to strengthen the capacity of higher education institutions in Region 7, thus achieving improvement through the interaction between education, innovation and business.
The project intends to create short and long-term benefits for higher education, business and society by promoting European values through:
- Recognition of common European educational standards outside the EU;
- Strengthening education-business-society links;
- Improving intercultural dialogue between participating countries.
- Facilitating the provision of accessible and free educational resources.
- Provide a common framework encouraging the exchange and sharing of experiences and best practices through cooperation between experts from the European Union and Central Asia in various fields.
