Description

The BIPER project aims to develop a blended-learning compatible Business Information Systems (BIS) curriculum based on shared values, eLearning experiences and sound pedagogical principles.

Methodological innovations are needed that can deliver soft skills along with best practices for teaching and learning such skills. This implies digital education that goes beyond the simple demonstration of how to use some software tools but instead could allow the transfer of complex skills and capabilities required by developing and managing modern computer and data systems. Sharing best practices and experiences between institutions of differing cultures is essential in this regard. Furthermore, new methods, methodologies, and techniques need to be explored as well – solutions that could be used both in a fully online setting and could be successful in the context of hybrid and mixed approach educational settings as well.

The project aims at allowing consortium partners to share their knowledge and expertise concerning the above situation and develop a shared pool of shared resources benefiting both its members as well as the wider BIS education community.

This proposal relates to “KEY ACTION 2 COOPERATION FOR INNOVATION AND THE EXCHANGE OF GOOD PRACTICES” (see Erasmus+ Program Guide page 11). Besides, it considers the goals laid out in the “Corrigendum to the 2020 Erasmus+ Programme Guide” – especially its request for innovation put forward on page 3. Thus, members of this consortium intend to

  • share (existing) content related to teaching soft computer skills, including but not limited to software development and data analytics – that are traditionally taught in computer labs with small groups in a face-to-face manner
  • develop new methods and content (based on those methods) to teach programming and the use of complex analytical techniques and tools where correcting errors is often complicated and challenging even in person, and there is high uncertainty
  • review existing best practices and evaluate and compare them with the intent to adjust them (investigate their applicability) to the challenges (what are they?) of the computer soft skill field and customise them to various settings.
