Digital Transformation in Education for the Cultural and Creative Industries

DIGITCRESHE

ABOUT DIGITCRESHE

Research on the Western Balkans (WB) conducted by the British Council, also in 2018, highlighted the lack of qualified individuals in the Cultural and Creative Sectors (CCS) mainly due to a mismatch between educational provision and the sector requirements.

Educational programs reportedly were still based on passive pedagogical methodologies that neglected to incorporate sufficient practical knowledge, meaning that graduates had theoretical knowledge but little understanding on how to put it into practice and lacked skills and competences that were fundamental for the workplace like creative thinking, collaboration, leadership, etc.

The European Commission clearly outlined, in its 2018 Strategy for the Western Balkans, that “digital transformation can be a crosscutting boost to transform the region”

DIGITCRESHE
MAIN GOAL

The project aims to improve the quality of the Higher Education programmes for the Creative Industries in the Western Balkan countries to make students more satisfied with the skills they acquired, to ensure that graduates are more skilled and competitive on the labour market and therefore achieving higher employment rates. This will be achieved through a digital transformation process that takes advantage of active learning methodologies and innovative tools. The project will assess the existing needs in HEI programmes for the CCS, will design, develop and/or adapt curricula, courses, learning materials and implement different learning and collaboration activities for teachers, postgraduates, and graduates.
