ABOUT THE PROJECT

logo

The purpose of the project is to improve employment possibilities of students with the development of new skills. That will be achieved with new forms of learning that give them knowledge they will be able to implement directly in the labor market.

Competences will be acquired with the innovative master module the present project will develop and through the case studies the students will have to develop. These will be implemented in real working situations and will see the active involvement of professionals and further stakeholders.

Peer-learning approaches will be used to develop the above mentionned case studies. 

The innovative Module on Managing Cultural Heritage in Tourism will have no face to face learning, as it will include e-learning courses, interactive seminars (webinars), creation of cases studies presented in real working contexts and blended mobilities to get a more detailed understanding of the heterogeneity of heritage tourism sites. It will also have an entrepreurial approach and will forster entrepreunerial skills of the students.

Tourism students have often a lack of skills in applied contexts and in the creation of heritage interpretations. It results in a limitation of the development of their knowledge and skills. This is one of the problems the project wants to tackle.

Skills will be increased by the practical case studies students will present, letting them developing these “real” situations skills that will be presented to a real audience and in particular real working context. Relevance of students’ knowledge will be possible as they will have to adapt the case studies to the specific professional context they are confronted with. 

These will be related to real problems recognized by the professionals and on which basis the students will develop their case studies.

 

 The partnership identified that students of master courses in Tourism Management, the 1st target group of the present project, face during their studies one or some of the following (negative) situations: 
 
– lack of use of technological plattorm and materials
– lack of training and knowledge on accessible in Heritage interpretation
– lack of knowledge on experience in co-creation in heritage context
– lack of case studies show-casting examples of appealing heritage interpretation
 
 
During project lifecycle, the joint development of three teaching modules with specific innovative didactic concepts will be achieved in order to ameliorate the afore mentionend negative situations the students are facing.
