Helping to ensure sustainability of outputs in tempus projects1

  • Within Projectsthe context of the Tempus projects sustainability it is about maintaining, supporting and the continuation of the programmes of study and other academic and professional achievements.

  • The main aim of this paper is to discuss the European Commission’s (EC) position on sustainability, in particular Tempus projects and outline the ways in which Tempus projects and indeed this project can sustain their relevant outputs.

Helping to ensure sustainability of outputs in tempus projects2

  • ProjectsA project is sustainable when it continues to deliver benefits to the project beneficiaries and/or other constituencies for an extended period after the Commission’s financial assistance has been terminated” (European Commission Handbook, 2006).

  • The EC specify two criteria to help focus and maintain sustainability and these will be discussed in some detail with practical examples wherever possible:

  • Diversity and intensity of activities/outputs maintained or developed after the endof the funding

  • Intensity and enlargement of the cooperation

Maintenance sustainability and these will be discussed in some detail with practical examples wherever possibleof outputs and activities

  • Activities/outputs are maintained, i.e. in the case of this project the developed curriculum is still used and supported (outputs) at the end of the project. The student numbers have increased.

  • The quality of the programme continues with research findings to support the continual development of teaching, learning and assessment methods that are cognisant with the changing academic and practice content of the programme.

  • The staff sustainability and these will be discussed in some detail with practical examples wherever possibleinvolved continue to have support and education to enable the changing process of the programme. Once validated a programme of study does not stand still it has to be abreast of the wider changes incorporating changes in social and health circumstance and current policy initiative within a certain culture.

The Website sustainability and these will be discussed in some detail with practical examples wherever possible

The Website will continue to be supported and funded (Lobbying the more senior members of the Universities to support the Website financially or obtaining subscriptions from members). Maybe offer that it could be used for other initiatives etc.

Development sustainability and these will be discussed in some detail with practical examples wherever possibleof the outputs and activities

Activities and outputs are developed. For example further courses. There could be plans in situ to develop the programmes with a more specific focus or at a higher level. For example Doctoral.

  • Examples from Erasmus projects:

  • TENN

  • EUROPEAN MASTERS

Web E-Learning and sharing sustainability and these will be discussed in some detail with practical examples wherever possible

  • Activities/outputs can be disseminated, i.e. creation of a web site or an addition to the existing one presenting e-learning sessions (activities) so that the curriculum developed can be shared through collaboration with other universities not included in the current project. Moreover, students residing in other countries can access the programmes.

Publications sustainability and these will be discussed in some detail with practical examples wherever possible

  • Collaborative publications on the work achieved is very important for bringing academic and practitioners together and helps to disseminate good practice.

  • International collaborative research is an indicator of quality research and helps to raise the status of universities, encourage other funding for projects and research studies.

Some example of publications sustainability and these will be discussed in some detail with practical examples wherever possible:

the importance of developing teaching and learning strategies for E-Learning.

Outlining the development of the new Masters and the process undertaken

Discussing new initiatives within the development

Student’s perspectives and experiences throughout the programme

Research Policy sustainability and these will be discussed in some detail with practical examples wherever possible

The development and or enhancement of a strong Research Policy where evidence is obtained to assure the quality of the teaching and the programme content.

Development and or enhancement of learning cultures

  • Learning environments are crucial in helping to advance practice. The staff are important and should be supported and motivated. This includes both teachers and support staff. This support and motivation can be in the form of:
