Project Summary
The strategic aims of the project are testing and conducting training course for bachelor students “EUROTRAINING. European Union issues and values” . At the present time there is a contradiction between the opportunities of European educational space open for Russian students and their real participation in the European educational programs. It is partly connected with inadequate perception about European Union issues and values that undergraduate students may have. Also there is a number of myths about European educational and social activities which reduce motivation to participate in them. Such situation requires a specially designed educational program. In this case the target group of this program are undergraduate students as after completion of this stage of higher education many opportunities connected with participation in the European educational and social activities are open for Russian students.Objectives of EUROTRAINING: create interest in the EU issues and values; increase knowledge about European integration; raise awareness in European Union issues and values; increase motivation to participation in the European educational and social activities. As a result of the training students will get a deeper understanding of EU issues and values. They will be more motivated and prepared to participate in the European educational and social activities in the educational and/or professional career. Evaluation of the outcomes of the EUROTRAINING will be carried out by educational experiment.Eurotraining toolkit will be worked out. Dissemination activity: publications of scientific articles; carrying out different events on scientific conferences; holding the internet conference "Questions of the European integration in the Russian higher education?"; carrying out the cycle of webinars for teachers; creation of a network of interaction of the Russian experts in the field of European Union issues and values; creation Open educational resource.
