ERASMUS+ Introduction of part-time and short cycle studies in Serbia

PTSCHE

Part Time and Short Cycle Higher Education (PT&SCHE)            

This project aims to propose, currently missing, the legislation framework for both PT & SCHE studies in Serbia (EQF Level 5). The proposed concepts, legislation and pedagogical and technological approaches for PT & SCHE studies will be tested and analysed using pilot implementations of five PT & SCHE programs, realized in both face-to-face and online modes of learning. After the first year of the pilot implementations, a detail analysis of its effects will be elaborated and reported, and implementation guidelines will be offered to HEIs interested in designing new PT & SCHE studies.

Expected impacts: wider access to HE, increase of enrolled students, increase of employment, qualifications of employees are more in line with the needs of their job.

Dr Rachel Shanks and Dr Bruce Scharlau are working on this project alongside colleagues from Tallinn University, Maribor College in Slovenia, the Open University of the Netherlands and nine Higher Education Institutions in Serbia.

This project is running from 15th October 2015 to 14th October 2018.
