Title: The modernization and Internationalisation of the curriculum at Urals Academy of Public Administration
Coordinating University: London Metropolitan University, UK
RF Partner HEIs: State University Higher School of Economics, Urals Academy of Public Administration
Courses developed within this project have had ECTS credits associated with them with a standard credit value of 10ECTS credits per course. The courses have been designed from a student workload perspective taking into account all the student activities associated with the courses. Although this is not yet applied across the HEI the intention is for these courses to act as models for the rest of the HEI. All the developed courses have aims and learning outcomes stated as standard. The assessment methodology has also been adapted to ensure testing of learning outcomes.
Promote continuity of collaboration between Russian Federation HEI’s and EU HEI’s, as long term collaboration has been shown to be give great benefits. Current examples could be developed as Centres of Excellence for the promotion of the Bologna Process.
