Course development

Tasks

– Generate a layout for professional information.
– Present Work Packages (WP) and responsibilities.
– Present the overall needs and regional priorities and detailed planning for requirement analysis for the development of courses.
– Discuss the overall data and functionality needed for the development of iMSEP.
– Present the overall e-learning situation at the partner universities.
– Present the available alumni capacity in the region and EU.
– Organizing the Steering Committee and selecting of the members.
– Organizing the Quality Control group and selecting of the members.
– Formulate a MoU/MoA.

Description

The project members will develop innovative blended courses focusing on needs and requirements of stakeholders related to environmental protection and disaster risk management in Central Asia. The regional partners and the European participants will assign the most qualified staff at the universities and other required facilities for the best possible development of the courses.
For the development of courses, existing course material, recent research publications, knowledge and experiences of the developers, etc. will be used to get the most proper and innovative results. Course development groups will be in continuous contact with each other, through the course coordinators, to discuss the procedures and issues. This will mainly be done through communication channels such as Skype and e-mail. Course developers will attend meetings to discuss course development face-to-face as well as presenting the outcomes and results.

Related assumptions and risks

A working group will be created for the development of each course. Each group consists of 8 academic staff, one from each partner and participant universities. Representatives from associate partners (no cost) and pilot students (assessment) will be added to the groups. In each group, a participant university will be the course  coordinator.
There is no identified major risk for the development of courses. A minor risk maybe relevant to information gaps related to the environmental conditions of Central Asia. However, regional course developers will be able to find reliable data and information, which are useful/necessary for the course development. Additionally, accreditation of the courses may take much time due to bureaucracy.
