Activities and Methodolgy
Work-package 1 (WP1)

WP2 - Capacity-building and Curricula Development
Professionals from Asian partners will visit Europe and then develop new curricula and vocational training courses for their respective institutions to offer. New MSc curricula/courses will be developed incorporating internship programmes for each partner institution. Similarly, new vocational training courses will also be developed. A Virtual eLearning platform (VLE) will also be developed to share courses, course materials and experiences.
WP3 - Academic staff training and preparation for delivery
A series of lesson plan preparations and course delivery trainings will be organized for Asian lecturers in their home institutions along with developing a training manual. This would be a testing period for new or improved existing courses.
WP4 - Accreditation and delivery of the courses
Each partner university engaging in developing new the curricula/courses will take necessary actions to accredit them as full-fledge MSc program or as a part of existing Master’s degree curricula. New curricula/courses developed based on the needs and improved delivery methods would attract more prospective students. Internship programme should be helpful in providing real field experience and opportunity to develop required skills.
