Podpora moderních trendů ve výuce s ohledem na Best practice/ Unterstützung moderner Trends im Unterricht in Bezug auf Best Practices – No. 261 (Supporting modern trends in teaching with regard to Best practice)
The project, with its content, is focused on the importance of linking Bachelor´s Study programmes with the professional sector. Higher education institutions on both sides of the border are closely related to experts from practice that can enrich teaching with specific requirements for the competences of university students and graduates. The aim of the project is to create a web and mobile application (Czech, German) and foreign-language online platform (web sites in Czech and German). A sub-aim is the innovation of study materials in the study programmes of both partners (Business Administration and Management at ITB and Business Economics at OTH) by involving experts from practice (Best Practice), who will participate in making audio/video recordings. In this context, Best practice refers to the transfer the most useful practical knowledge from experts to theoretical teaching and learning materials. The experts will participate both in innovating of study materials and in teaching in the form of audio/video recordings. The innovation of study materials will apply to Bachelor´s study programmes (see above) which fall under “Business Administration“, specifically in the following subjects: Investment management, Human Resources management, Marketing, Business Finance, Marketing management, etc.). It will apply to similar subjects taught at both partner institutions so that the result is applicable both for Czech and German students.
