Seminar for academic staff within the dual degree programme


On February 06, 2021 the academic staff of our University, engaged in the delivery of the dual degree programme KSUAE-UEL, participated in online seminar on "Student Assessment System: Bloom's Taxonomy".

The headliner and speaker of the seminar was Dr Dilyara Shakirova, the Expert on International Education, Institute for Educational Development of the Republic of Tatarstan, Institute of "Applied Semiotics", Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Tatarstan.

Dr Olga Poroshenko, Head of the International Relations of the KSUAE, made an introduction into the seminar and also announced about the transition to the UEL New Academic Framework within the British programme starting from September 2021.

Dr Shakirova talked about Interconnection of requirements for the quality of education, competence approach and ways to assess learning (education) outcomes; about International requirements for the quality of vocational education. In particular, she talked about the Taxonomy system: how to distribute complexly organized areas of reality into classes and groups; mostly about Benjamin Bloom's Taxonomy. Benjamin Bloom, a psychologist at the University of Chicago, proposed the taxonomy in 1956 as a method for assessing the success of teaching process. 

Such method is widely used in assessments of student progress within our dual degree programme KSUAE-UEL. Therefore, the staff engaged in the programme should know the subject very well.

This seminar is an advanced training organized from time to time for our staff and such trainings are mandatory for all programme leaders and module leaders of the dual degree programme KSUAE-UEL.

At the end of January 2021 within one week KSUAE participated in the Grant-holders' meeting of newly selected Capacity Building in Higher Education (CBHE) projects. As a consequence of the travel restrictions imposed because of the outbreak of the COVID19, this year’s event was entirely online.

This event was dedicated to the representatives of CBHE projects selected in 2020 under the Call for proposals EAC/A02/2019.We should mention that last year KSUAE's application with the project "Capacity Building in Sustainablity for Architectural Heritage" for the Erasmus+ Key Action 2 was selected by EACEA.

The overall aim of the meeting is to address in detail issues related to the implementation of the CBHE projects, the operational management of the grant agreement and the financial rules applicable to the CBHE grant. The event also offered the opportunity for new and experienced coordinators to network and to share experience and good practice.

The meeting was divided into plenary sessions, parallel regional workshops, e-Booths and bilateral helpdesks:
1.The plenary sessions addressed the operational management of the grant agreement and the financial rules applicable.
2.The regional workshops addressed aspects related to the implementation of our project in the targeted Region, in our case in Russia.
3.The e-Booths offered a virtual space to foster networking and the exchange of information with key actors for the implementation of projects.
4.The bilateral helpdesks and meetings allowed individual projects to meet their EACEA Project Officers.

The participation in the conference was mandatory for all selected projects under the above-mentioned call.

1.The project coordinator from the coordinating institution University of L'Aquila.
2.One representative from one of the beneficiary institutions located in a Partner Country. Our University became such an institution.

During the bilateral meetings and helpdesks the EACEA Project Officer Andrea Murzi that coordinates our project was interested in ways of the implementation of our project in general and pointed out strong and some other points of the application that should be reconsidered a little at the beginning of the project. Prof Anna Tozzi, University of L'Aquila, and Dr Olga Poroshenko, KSUAE, outlined their views what steps would be made to improve the application and submitted several questions to the Officer on management and financial issues of the project.
