Project Summary

Armenia and Russia have a long tradition of working with part-time students combining work and learning. Ministries of Education and Science of the two countries put a great attention and focus mainly on the dual model of education for full-time students. This decision was very fruitful for the development of university-enterprise cooperation. However, opposite to this we see many students working at various companies and work places who are not involved in the systematic institutional relations with dual education due to various reasons: companies and universities are not ready to develop dual education systematically, it is not so easy for HEIs to find real partners for a group of students and so on. We offer to develop a new opportunity – flexible WBL Framework, which is suitable for any student who combines learning and work at any enterprise and could be developed by any university without special approval from authorities. That is the main reason why our consortium tries to find university without special approval from authorities. That is the main reason why our consortium tries to find funding and partners to obtain professional expertise and gain knowledge and skills of creation of WBL for the study programme delivery in different subjects. The CBHE project of Erasmus+ programme is the ideal instrument for our project where we can:

  • find professional expertise from those who created already or are at the stage of completion of real WBL Integrated Curricula;
  • capacitate our teachers, administrations and employers with the best knowledge and skills how to develop a new win-win model for working students;
  • obtain contribution from the Programme Country partners where more than 200 WBL projects have been completed http://www.net-wbl.eu/ is invaluable;
  • show our authorities the positive outcomes of making teaching and learning more flexible and accessible to receive further support and save the part-time and extramural education;
  • facilitate and support the transfer and adaption of the European practice of WBL implementation.
