The democratic education is an educational approach that attempts to address the following key question: How to prepare the student towards life in ademocratic society? A question that is supposed to be the driving force of the education system. In the democratic education, the student focuses on exploring and identifying his/her individual and social goals and develops strengths in such way that enables him/her to direct one’s life according to these goals. The school assists the student in creating and acquiring the tools that will help him/her achieve one’s goals.

EPIC workshops, EPIC is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union

W7 (kl. 13.00 – 14:20) EPIC: Making Student Projects Beneficial for Students,Companies and Universities.

Projects based on real-world problems from companies can be highly motivating for students to work on, and at the same time provide a starting point for obtaining transversal competences including collaboration and communication skills. This is especially true for multinational and interdisciplinary projects. In this session, we explore such projects from idea to product and exam, and discuss how they are defined, setup and supervised in collaboration between universities and companies. A particular focus is on how these can create value not only for the students,but also for the companies and universities: After all, this is necessary inorder to have a sustainable relationship between the stakeholders.

The session is highly interactive. While it is based on the results of the Erasmus+ project EPIC (epic.agu.edu.tr), theparticipants are expected to contribute also with their own experiences.

Co-organizer: Associate Professor Jens Myrup Pedersen, Aalborg University,Denmark and Professor Jan Frick, Handelshøgskolen ved Universitetet i Stavanger.

 

W8 (kl. 14.30 – 15:50) EPIC: Multinational Student Projects based on virtualcollaboration and blended learning.

Students today need to be prepared for a globalized world, where the ability to collaborate acrosscountries, cultures and disciplines is crucial. One way of giving the students these competences is through student projects, where students collaborate on solving real-world problems - even across disciplines and physical distances. This session explores how this can be done through a mix of virtual and physical collaboration, even across institutions with different regulations and traditions. 

The session is highly interactive. While it is based on the results of the Erasmus+ project EPIC (epic.agu.edu.tr),the participants are expected to contribute also with their experiences.

Co-organizer: Associate Professor Jens Myrup Pedersen, Aalborg University,Denmark and Professor Jan Frick, Handelshøgskolen ved Universitet i Stavanger. EPIC is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union.
