Theme 5: Services, Research & Methods
Why are Services, Research & Methods a precondition for a successful collaboration for institutions?
Joint research between strategic triangle partners can be critical in developing new curricula, course and programme improvement, and the organisation of WBL.
Such joint research projects need to be based on precise methods and approaches within the context of agreed strategic aims. And a significant added value is that they will have a durable impact on the strength and quality of collaboration from the perspectives of all stakeholders.
At the same time, crucial services such as careers advice and guidance need to be integrated into partnership working and identified in strategic outcomes.
So, through the knowledge and expertise gained from the realisation of projects and services, partners will be in a better position to identify and develop new skills and professional profiles. And thereby enhance existing curricula, review the relevance of courses and improve the organisation of WBL, especially learning and assessment practices.
