«ConnectEurasia: Designing Collaborative Online Learning for Sustainability»

The Swiss Global Competence Lab is happy to share that it is supporting several project activities in the Movetia funded project «ConnectEurasia: Designing Collaborative Online Learning for Sustainability». The project is headed by the Haute École Spécialisée de Suisse Occidentale (HES-SO)/ Haute École de Gestion Arc (HEG Arc), collaborating with colleagues from Azerbaijan State University of Economics, Al-Farabi Kazakh National University in Kazakhstan, and Shanghai University, School of Management, in China. The main goal of this project is to develop an innovative course concept following the project-based learning method in order to develop students’ global competences and to teach students relevant knowledge pertaining to the Eurasian market, with a focus on sustainability. Furthermore, the objective is to develop the Swiss Eurasian Center for Management (created at HEG Arc in 2022) and design it as a hub for students, higher education institutions, and organizations from the private sectors to foster further collaboration between partnering regions.
