1 1 1 master student mobility1
1.1.1 Master Student Mobility
  • Problems and issues:
  • Misfit between academic years and project span
  • Selection protocol should be defined
  • Possible misfit in the formal requirement (recognition of Bachelor, homogeneization of curricula)
  • Distance teaching is mentioned but it is not clear how it should be used
1 1 2 definition of master curriculum
1.1.2 Definition of Master Curriculum
  • Define a reference curriculum for a 2-year Master on Semantic Web

By December 2006:

  • Specification of a program

  • Teaching and examination material for the key-courses
1 1 2 definition of master curriculum1
1.1.2 Definition of Master Curriculum
  • Assets:

Definition of a “Shared Master” on Semantic Web in the framework of KnowledgeWeb

(Trento + Amsterdam + Madrid + Bolzano,

possibly Innsbruck & Galway?)

Experience of Swiss-AIT(VietNam) Master ?

1 1 3 implementation of graduate curriculum
1.1.3 Implementation of Graduate Curriculum
