Digital Business and Sustainable Entrepreneurship
Period: 22.10.2021 - 31.12.2023
Digital Business and Entrepreneurship with a Sustainability Approach - Learning
through Collaborations in a Cross-Cultural Setting” is a jointly designed
project by Novia UAS and Lambung Mangkurat University, in Banjarmasin, South
Kalimantan, Indonesia. The project is one of 27 projects that were selected
among 92 applications in the first call for proposals of the new Team Finland
Knowledge programme under the Finnish National Agency for Education. Activities
will last until the end of 2023 including, among others, joint courses and
workshops, creating new operating models of co-teaching in hybrid and blended
teaching environments. The model is piloted through the planning and
implementing of joint courses.
The aim is to increase teacher competencies for virtual teaching, focusing on
specific skills development for students integrated within jointly identified
fields of teaching. A new operating model will be created, with teachers
co-teaching around identified topics but from different perspectives,
integrating sustainability throughout the course modules.
Project activities include virtual and onsite workshops focusing on
professional development through curriculum and course design, jointly
delivering the courses. The initiative highlights cross-cultural collaboration,
entrepreneurship, sustainability and learning from each other and includes
short term inbound and outbound mobility for selected staff and students.
The anticipated project results are:
- Improved competencies for virtual and collaborative teaching.
- Improved understanding of important aspects in the teaching methodology to
integrate sustainability approaches and identified skills for future working
- Lessons learnt after piloting a new operating model can be used in other
fields of teaching.
The purpose of the Team Finland Knowledge programme is to create and strengthen
cooperation between Finnish higher education institutions and the target
regions and countries selected to the TFK network, and to design new operating
models for cooperation. The programme funds educational cooperation between
higher education institutions through cooperation and mobility projects.
