Aim

The meeting aimed to further develop the Joint Curriculum by finalizing the structure of the Curriculum, based on information gained through the needs assessment study, and the innovative teaching methods study.

Results

During the meeting the development of the Joint Curriculum progressed to a great extent. The partners agreed upon the basic macro and microstructure of the program. Macrostructure means the three main blocks of the program (Basic – Core – Advanced Courses), while Microstructure means the actual course list belonging to each main block. We also started to design specialized tracks and possible student pathways along the program. For all this, the Consortium got provided with the information regarding the needs assessment (analysis performed by the Polish partner), by the practice of other similar programs (analysis performed by the Bulgarian partner), and by the possibilities of innovative teaching methods we could use during the program (analysis provided by the Bulgarian partner).

Social Event

On October 20th, evening dinner was organized at a local restaurant. Partners came together and had the opportunity to get to know each other.
