Granting authority: European Education and Culture Executive Agency

Project Summary: The aim of the proposed module is to promote theoretical understanding of how culture is developing within the EU digital domain of education by bringing forward relevant theories, approaches and policy documents.

The Module “Digital Culture in Higher Education: European Perspective” includes the next main activities: teaching (lectures and practical classes), deliverables, events (roundtable discussions, seminars, workshops, a summer school, a conference). The teaching course will cover Bachelor students enrolled for the following educational programs at AITU “Media Technologies”, “Digital Journalism”, “IT Management”. “IT Entrepreneurship”, “Soft Engineering” and “Cyber Security”.

The primary outcomes are the students’ knowledge, skills and competences. The Module will provide students with the ability to use technology creatively and analyze the effects of technological change on cultural relations. After the completion of the course students are expected to have in-depth knowledge of EU policy in digital transformation, understanding the impact of technology and the ways in which digital technologies can be used to improve society, as well as an ability to analytically apply such theories to empirical cases.

The proposed module will enhance interest in EU affairs, encourage and promote diversification of EU studies on local and national levels. Furthermore, all developed study materials after the project implementation can be used as a basis for forming the European trajectory within any educational program, as the issues under study are essential for the current context.
