PROMIS Tempus Project

  1. 1. PROfessional network of Master’s degrees in Informatics as a Second Competence (PROMIS) December 2013 – November 2016 Jean-Michel Adam – Daniel Bardou - Anna Goloubtsova Université Pierre Mendès France (Grenoble 2)
  2. 2.  All the students in the partner countries have to work in parallel of the studies => dropouts, lower skills in comparison with UE students  Low number of students : only students with grant or scholarship  Academic knowledge is more developed than practical skills  Communication between network members is quite low  We did not check if the content of the taught syllabi match with the common syllabi, tests were developed but not used with the students. Findings and challenges identified in ERAMIS 2
  3. 3. PROMIS Tempus project main Goals  Extension of ERAMIS network in Central Asia:  extension in Kazakhstan and Kirghizstan,  creation in Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan.  Improvement of the academic quality of the network  Improvement of the vocational focus of the master degrees in computer sciences in different ways  Establishment of strong relationships between companies and universities  Adapting teaching process to the students working in parallel of the studies :  reverse teaching (1st year of the master)  course combined with work experience studies (2nd year)  Improvement of the network by sharing courses and pedagogic material

  6. 6. Geographical extension of ERAMIS network  Development of the new ISC masters  Needs analysis : carrying out of a survey of companies to learn about ICT skills they seek  Presentation of the results (2nd coordination meeting) and decision to create or not a new ISC master ; if not decision of what will be developed  Constitution of educational teams  Preparation of accreditation applications and accreditation by the relevant ministry  Student recruitment and launching of masters degree
  7. 7.  Set up flip teaching (1st year)  the theoretical part of the teaching is earned on a personal basis by the students using various teaching documents  the teacher-students interactions focus on practical aspects: problem solving, case studies, answering questions  Course supports available on-line on a e-learning platform,  As we work within a network, it will be possible to share these documents as soon as they are expressed in English or in the official languages of the beneficiary countries (Russian and eventually national languages). Adaptation of the trainings for students working in parallel 7
  8. 8.  Development of course combined with work experience studies (2nd year)  the student works on a part-time basis in a company which finances in return a part of the studies  the professional skills acquired during the first year can be used in practice  the student also attend the university teaching on a full- time basis  Master's thesis should be replaced by reports on the professional activity carried out within the company that would be evaluated both by the university and the company. Adaptation of the trainings for students working in parallel 8
  9. 9.  Involvement of companies in studies curriculum  Inform Central Asia companies on the opportunity to hire students with real high level professional skills in informatics right after their graduation, those skills being the ones expected by companies.  Involvement of companies' fellows in the masters degree teaching process (participation in steering committees, development of internships, setting up courses taught by companies' fellows ...)  Close cooperation between companies and universities will be encouraged  Awareness seminars will be organized in beneficiary universities for local companies in order to transfer the European partners’ experience. Establishment of strong relationships between companies and universities Projet Tempus Eramis 9
  10. 10. Improvement of the quality of the teaching  Core courses built together and shared : sharing our experience will improve the quality of the training course  Elective courses proposed by each partner are open at distance to the students of the network  The assessment is done by the partner university proposing the course  These elective courses are included in the masters degree accreditation: students get ECTS if exam passed  Assessment of all the students in the network  Creation of double (or multiple?) diploma between universities of the network
  11. 11. Yes we can ! IF we realise all these objectives… THEN our PROMIS project will be a success ! ENDIF Thank you for your participation
