  1. The Attractiveness of European Universities By Doina Verdes Technical University Of Cluj-Napoca,Romania And Claudia Semeraro University Of Genoa, Italy ERASMUS MUNDUSFASTQUADPROJECT -NOVOSIBIRSK MEETING ,22-25 SEPTEMBER 2010

  2. Why are Or should be attractive European universities for students from non EU countries and vice versa ? Because: • are not at home! • are located in the cities with history and cultural tradition; • the mobility in a foreign university is a challenge to prove your self that you can study and live abroad • it is a way to have an academic experience • it is an intercultural experience • is a way to study and communicate in a foreign language ERASMUS MUNDUSFASTQUADPROJECT -NOVOSIBIRSK MEETING ,22-25 SEPTEMBER 2010

  3. To add more answers we can have: - a quick look at the aims of the Bologna Process for the establishment of a European higher education area – EHEA- to study the problem from the student perspective- and to make a view on two examples of good practice in the field of European and international student mobility To add more answers ERASMUS MUNDUSFASTQUADPROJECT -NOVOSIBIRSK MEETING ,22-25 SEPTEMBER 2010

  4. European Higher Education Area - EHEA • adoption of a three-cycle structure Bachelor – Master - Doctorate • introduction of the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) • the provision of the Diploma Supplement • the recognition of joint degrees • the introduction of national qualifications frameworks and the development of quality assurance in higher education.

  22. The Objectives To make students, teachers, companies and institutions share knowledge and experience between various countries of Europe and to create a common frame of reference concerning the assessment of risks in work and the design of work places. ERASMUS MUNDUSFASTQUADPROJECT -NOVOSIBIRSK MEETING ,22-25 SEPTEMBER 2010

  23. development have been in two phases based on the heuristic pedagogy namely: Methodology of the project ERASMUS MUNDUSFASTQUADPROJECT -NOVOSIBIRSK MEETING ,22-25 SEPTEMBER 2010

  24. The 1stStage of the project ERASMUS MUNDUSFASTQUADPROJECT -NOVOSIBIRSK MEETING ,22-25 SEPTEMBER 2010

  26. The knowledges acquired • Conceptualisation • Identification, recognition, anticipation • Risk matrix • Engineering design • Design processes • How to build a model at scale 1 • Controls (risk reduction measures) • Evaluation (assessment) ERASMUS MUNDUSFASTQUADPROJECT -NOVOSIBIRSK MEETING ,22-25 SEPTEMBER 2010

  27. Skills devloped To interpret a concept and to represent it graphically To realize and to artifact it To identify the requirements for a given function of a building To identify the reality  hazard recognition To work in an interdisciplinary and international team To practice a foreign language To have intercultural exchange ERASMUS MUNDUSFASTQUADPROJECT -NOVOSIBIRSK MEETING ,22-25 SEPTEMBER 2010

The competences To design the work place in accordance with performances for: • - special functions of the building and technology • - the structure of building in accordance with the safety of work places • - the risks management at the local work place level and at the global technological process and building ERASMUS MUNDUSFASTQUADPROJECT -NOVOSIBIRSK MEETING ,22-25 SEPTEMBER 2010

  29. Recognition of the student work in the project • The subject is a new discipline which is not exactly the same in all the syllabus of participating schools or faculties; • The number of didactical hours was 48/week (very intensive!) for student and teacher; the duration of the workshop was two weeks; • The students acquired 5 ECTS credits for the subject “industrial design” (Mechanical Engineering) or the equivalence with the subject “practical training” or “architectural design” at the level admitted by the specific syllabus (Architecture, Electrical engineering, Civil engineering). ERASMUS MUNDUSFASTQUADPROJECT -NOVOSIBIRSK MEETING ,22-25 SEPTEMBER 2010

  30. Problems in organising the student mobility and didactical activity: • The students selection • The accommodation and hosting • The visa for non EU students • The letter of attendance and certificate of completion • The organising the workshop (the hall, the presentations, the access to library and Internet etc.) • Invited lecturers • The organising of the site into the laboratory for building models at scale 1/1 and purchasing the materials for these. • To organise the assessment procedure by a jury formed from specialised and non advised persons ERASMUS MUNDUSFASTQUADPROJECT -NOVOSIBIRSK MEETING ,22-25 SEPTEMBER 2010

  31. The dissemination • The dissemination by Media (radio, TV, press) • The presentation of the project to conferences • The valorisation of the results in writing new project to make a Curriculum for a modulus of learning at the European level to be implemented to the participating institutions ERASMUS MUNDUSFASTQUADPROJECT -NOVOSIBIRSK MEETING ,22-25 SEPTEMBER 2010

  33. The reflection My basic idea is that for every person, in his and her culture and specific situation, other people and cultures provide a possibility for reflection and change, and that it is also a possibility to learn.
