Sumár projektu:The COVID 19 pandemic poses a threat to ensuring and maintaining the quality of higher education caused by insufficient readiness of universities for digital learning in the 21st century. On the other hand, the current situation represents a unique opportunity for the rebirth and transformation of education through unified digital education and the expansion of the possibility of international networking between strategic partners. The content of the submitted project is based on the baseline study of the European Commission "Policy Brief: The Impact of COVID-19 on Food Security and Nutrition", according to which EU citizens during the first and second waves of the coronavirus reduced the overall demand for meeting less important needs and included food security and its sustainability among the most important priorities of the functioning of the society. Therefore, the aim of the proposed project is to reinforce the ability of education at the strategic partners´ institutions in the field of agri-environmental and food law through the feasible and effective implementation set of tools to ensure high quality, inclusive digital education. Specific objectives of the project are: - to develop and/or use high-quality digital content in the form of newly developed innovative teaching application; - develop digital pedagogical competences of teachers/trainers/researchers and learners; - to deliver high quality inclusive digital learning opportunities for learners; - to promote networking of strategic partners in the area of sharing of resources and expertise in the field of agri-environmental legislation, using digital technology providers and experts in educational technologies and relevant pedagogical practice. Master students, teachers, trainers, researchers of strategic partners, and institutions of formal and non-formal education, as well as relevant stakeholders from the area of agri-environmental law, were identified as the target groups. The partnership involves the strategic partners from the following countries in terms of maintaining the political-geographical balance: Slovakia, Poland, Portugal, and Italy. In order to create the most comprehensive education possible in this area, scientific and educational institutions (HEIs) and institutions operating directly in application practice are proposed as strategic partners representing each country. To fulfill the main goal and specific objectives, the project proposes the project activities as follows: - Development of an innovative smart application InCreDi, the aim of which will be to create a digital learning platform tailored to the educational process of legal branches and the requirements of strategic partners. InCreDi will be freely downloadable, available online/offline, and designed for a variety of smart devices (computers, tablets, and smartphones). - Elaboration of Guidelines for users of InCreDi to guide and make it easier the use all the proposed InCreDi tools. - Organisation of the seminar "Effective digital approaches to modern education" will aim to acquaint target groups with the latest trends in digital technologies as well as to clarify changes in learning in the cognitive process in the digital education system. - Elaboration of didactic materials for the course "EU Agri-Environmental law" as common teaching materials. Didactic materials are supplemented by practical cases, videos, vlogs, and tests. - Pilot testing of e-learning course "EU agri-environmental law" as a joint European course where the MSc. students from all strategic HEIs will meet together for education. - Storytelling will provide the target groups with the most up-to-date information in the field of agri-environmental law. - Elaboration of comparative analysis of agri-environmental law in the EU in individual countries of the strategic partnership will bring comparative knowledge from countries of the strategic partnership. - Organising the problem-solving webinars conducted in each Strategic Partnership country will provide four thematic areas that will enable the target groups to actively discuss the current challenges of EU agri-environmental law. - Organising of the dissemination activities – development and updating of the project webpage, seminars as multiplier events, preparation of online and printed materials and events. Strategic partners expect the desired impacts: - improved digitization of education, modernisation and internationalisation at home; - improved skills and competencies of target groups (professional, language, intercultural, organisational); - increased employability of students on the national and EU labor market; - improved harmonised educational approach to the teaching of legal branches; - improved recognizability and credibility of the strategic partners at the national and EU level; - amended agrarian and agri-environmental legislation; - increased interest and awareness of the issues related to agri-environmental law.
