Bringing European Studies to Journalism, Agriculture, Engineering, Philology, Economics, History, Law and Sociology students through Teaching and Open Educational Resources
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This project aims to expand the area of European studies towards students that do not have a direct contact with European integration aspects, although they are increasingly affected by them. Journalism, Agriculture, Engineering, Languages, Economics, History, Law and Sociology students will attend 3 sets of European Integration related Courses and Seminars, during which they acquire European related knowledge and the resources for applying it to their work. These students develop a more accurate European consciousness, allowing them to have an added value to their professional development and expertise. The students’ papers combine subjects of their own domain with European aspects regarding institutions, policies and stakeholders. A selection will be made and a Brochure will be published for each course. They have a research component, finalized in a Book in which they use their specific domain through a common lens, that of European citizens that participate among other (non)institutional actors in the European public area, in order to analyze the freedom of movement and work in the EU. The project creates an Open Educational Resources Digital Space in which whoever is interested can find materials regarding European Integration (the 3 Course supports, the materials made by students for the 3 Seminars, handouts, flyers etc). The team also creates a dedicated website that assures, along with the newsletters (that will also appear on the sites of the faculties were the students come from) the ongoing contact between the participants of the project and other interested parts. The Opening and Closure Conferences disseminate the activities of the project and the results that can be used even after the project has ended. The 2 Round Tables bring together civil society, students and supranational, national, regional and local decision makers for debating aspects regarding European policies and decision-making, especially the participation of the citizens in this process
