ERASMUS+ Strategic partnership project “Development of Interdisciplinary skills for cooperation and conflict management”

In September 2019 Turiba University in cooperation with 5 partner Universities from Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland and Austria has started to implement Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project which aims to elaborate different study and teaching materials for development of interdisciplinary and soft skills of students.

Nowadays communication, teamwork, cooperation conflict management anso called soft skills kiare very important for any professional in any field. Experience shows that very often students lack those interdisciplinary skills. Only rarely there are specific courses tackling those topics and skills and also there is a lack of training materials which academics can use in the study process in order to train those skills of students.

This ERASMUS+ project focuses on ability of students to cooperate for team work, set professional and academic goals, time management skills and efficient planning, multicultural communication, conflict diagnostics and conflict management. These skills are crucial for to be able to efficiently study in universities of the modern world. Curriculums of universities do not offer separate course to tackle this problematics. Moreover these skills are required not only during academic studies, but even after graduation to be prepared for professional life challenges. Therefore a goal is set to create inter-faculty study materials for the students from Law, Business, Communication and other Social science faculties in order to increase these skills and the university teachers could widely access such study materials.

The main aim of the project is to develop and implement innovative practices raelaboration of interdisciplinary study materials and tools (including mobile application) for students and teachers of different faculties.

The main results - video lectures, study materials, mobile phone application for daily studies, reading materials and self-study materials. In frame of the project partners will also train the students and trainers.

The project is implemented by the support of Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership Programme. Project Number: 2019-1-LV01-KA203-060423.
