How we will build the ETIKETA Label?
ETIKETA includes several research and design stages, amidst moments of joint reflection and public sharing of results, in order to ensure the production of outcomes of the proposed pilot that will facilitate the delivery of a joint European degree label and the provision of joint degrees by European HEIs.
ETIKETA builds on past solid experience in this domain and an innovative concept and methodology to attain outcomes that will facilitate and promote the future provision of European Joint Degrees.
Mission and Vision
Joint Educational Offer
The full partner HEIs have significant experience of delivering Joint Transnational Programmes including European Joint Masters Erasmus Mundus: Docnomads, Kino Eyes, Re:Anima and the recently approved Re_Play and 3 Joint masters under development: FilmMemory, ReSound and FACT.
Mapping, Optimisation & Evaluation
- Using the conceptual model “Planning for Uncertainty (PU)” WP2 will undertake a screening and mapping exercise of existing and proposed joint educational offers at EFQ 6, 7 and 8, benchmarking against the criteria and comparing with other educational labels and badges to assess the relevance of the proposed criteria for establishing a label which acknowledges the European and transnational experiences in a joint transnational programme leading to a higher education qualification.
- Using design and entrepreneurial thinking all stakeholders will co-create and finalise the optimisation of the joint criteria and evaluate guidelines for the provision of transnational joint degrees maximising the attractiveness and potential impact of such a label and explore the personas of future recipients of the proposed degree label and examine extreme, but plausible scenarios jointly defined by all partners.
- With the relevant national, regional and/or institutional authorities, and including the importance of flexibility in finding the best strategic alternatives for the label's future implementation, we discern the best viable option for the eventual implementation of a label for joint degrees. We then recommend an e-template that sets out the optimised criteria required for joint degrees, elaborating its compliance, security and compatibility with current and future digital technologies, forming the basis of WP3’s work.
Developing and Testing the EU Label
- To create a standardised self-evaluation method and format via which to assess the joint programmes, potentially leading to the awarding of the joint programmes with the quality label.
- To create a standardised template for external evaluators (national quality agencies and accreditation organisations) to aid the process of an independent evaluation of the joint programmes, potentially leading to the awarding of the joint programmes with the quality label.
- Assess the self-evaluation and external evaluation processes of the joint programmes.
- Design a template for issuing the European Degree Label and create the availability for its implementation in both physical and digital form (leading to the use of blockchain technology and creating connectivity with the IT systems of the different HEIs).
Delivery and Future Directions
- It will become apparent for all actors, students, staff, institutes and national and international agencies how a joint european degree label embodies an even stronger cohesion between the participating HEI, and between the several HEI and the professional and scholarly communities.
- During dedicated and already embedded events such as graduation shows and award ceremonies (KinoEyes, DocNomads, Re:anima) the joint European degree label will gain clarity and provide an overarching quality hallmark for graduates and their degrees, within the different fields of expertise of Film and Media arts.
- At the same time, within this phase, we will also deliver clear guidelines for the proposal and with the label already implemented in the joint degrees, guidelines for a Joint Degree as the next step foreseen in the call.
