Curriculum development projects are designed to support the process of innovation and upgrading in higher education teaching. They may be proposed in any academic discipline.
By combining the expertise and state-of-the-art knowledge of higher education institutions from at least three eligible countries participating in the LLP, such projects can make a significant contribution to reinforcing the quality and European dimension of higher education teaching.
What should the project emphasise:
- Particular importance is attached to co-operation with the professional world.
- Priority will be given to projects which aim at developing or revising one or more of the following:
1. integrated programmes covering a complete cycle of study (at bachelor, master or doctorate level) and leading to a recognised double or joint degree;
2. curricula and modules for continuing education designed to update knowledge obtained in the past;
3. teaching modules in highly interdisciplinary areas or in areas with a specific need for strong transnational cooperation in teaching.
What arrangements need to be made:
- After the development phase, these programmes or modules should be delivered by partner institutions in a genuinely integrated manner, involving student and staff mobility.
- The students should receive multiple or joint degrees (or certificates for modules), recognised by the participating institutions and countries.
- The last year of the project should be devoted to the implementation and dissemination of the joint delivery of the course/modules/curricula, agreement on admission criteria, learning outcomes, assessment, quality assurance and recognition.
