Project goals
  • Defining a legal framework that supports the development and implementation of study while employed and short study programs in Serbia;
  • Adoption and development of Online and Classical (F2F) methods of learning and technology for studying while employed and short study programs adapted to the employees who are expected to be most interested in these studies;
  • Implementation of five pilot PT & SCHE online and traditional (F2F) programs for testing project results;
  • Generating an analysis of the efficiency of the proposed legislation, adopted pedagogical and technological solutions, along with the guidelines for designers of PT & SCHE studies based on the experience acquired after one year of implementation of the pilot project.
The role of VISER on the project

Having a rich experience in the teaching process, dedicated to the employed students, which make up about 15% of the total number of students of VISER, was very important for creating appropriate teaching methods that best suit the needs of short program realization and studying while employed. VISER organized three pilot programs: one online course in the field of programming "Programmer of web applications" and two F2F programs "Professional development of professors and teachers" and "Vehicle diagnostics".

For organized short programs, appropriate literature and learning materials were provided. In addition to printed publications distributed free of charge to students, electronic learning materials have been created, and multimedia learning materials designed for students of the short program "Vehicle diagnostics" have been developed. VISER is one of the first higher education institutions in Serbia that introduced studying while employed for the study course Information Systems.

VISER is involved in the planning and implementation of the infrastructure and quality process control of the project, due to its rich experience on working on Erasmus + projects, and in project management activities.
