Development of the European Project Erasmus+ ECMT+ - Evaluation based on Student´s Self-reflective Learning Journals and Essays
Krystyna Heinz and Martina Chylková from the School of Business Administration in Karviná, Czech Republic have written a new article concerning the ECMT+ project: Development of the European Project Erasmus+ ECMT+ - Evaluation based on Student's Self-reflective Learning Journals and Essays.
"Nowadays, the process of economic globalisation increases, therefore global issues and important decisions in business, politics, education, health, and culture tend to affect citizens across borders. New attitudes and skills are required to work in global teams and deal with business partners or customers across cultures. The question of setting up an international business and effective communication between people of different nations is essential. The article tackles a new international project (IP) which significantly contributes to the development of intercultural and communicative competence while solving and creating case studies in multidisciplinary and multicultural groups. During the course programme, students are given a balance of experience and theoretical issues, have an opportunity to introduce the various actors of the programme and set clear guidelines. The programme Erasmus+ IP involved intensive two weeks of working together both of students and teachers from six different institutions and different disciplines in order to reflect and develop their communication skills while working in multicultural workgroups. The project accepted and financed within the programme Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership involves universities from Finland, France, Germany, Scotland, Belgium, and Poland. The aim of the article is to analyse the self-reflective journals and essays being a very effective way of students´ reflection on their learning experiences and making them engaged in the learning process prepared by students from the Czech and Finish teams to be able to compare different educational and business backgrounds."
