Enhancing and Validating servIce related competences in Versatile learning environments in Western BAlkan Universities (e-VIVA)
e-VIVA project aims at the creation of a blended learning approach to facilitate and validate competence developments related to service orientation in rather informal learning contexts in higher education institutes and workplace learning contexts. This relates for instance to those transversal competences that are of increasing importance in a mobile society like customer relation management, learning to learn, intercultural understanding and teamwork/collaboration.
With its approach to combine Higher Education and professional practice, e-VIVA will contribute to an improved transparency of the acquired competences in a transnational comparative approach. It will provide learning and validation opportunities in highly contextualised and individualised learning settings. With this it will also open up new learning pathways and eventually also lead to a better matching of learning contents and individual learning styles.
This project addresses Erasmus+ KA2 CBHE priorities: Recognition of Qualifications and Qualification Framework. This is a regional priority for the Western Balkans, meaning it is a cumulative priority for all countries. Service related competences are becoming an important aspect in non-formal and informal learning setting however, their integration in HEI learning approaches is quite new. Thus, the project presents a new engagement of HEIs into an innovative qualification framework of social-related competences.
Coordinating organization is European University of Tirana (UET).
