On May 26, 2021, the 10th FlexWBL transnational meeting of the project participants was held on the Zoom platform.
Progress reports were heard over the past period for each university participating in the project from Russia, Armenia, Latvia, Lithuania and Austria. Consideration was given to the possible extension of the project in the post-pandemic period. Colleagues from Armenia presented the results of the quality assessment study conducted first year of the project.
On May 15, 2021 participants from the Institute of Economics and Management (TvSU) in Tver shared information about the international scientific and practical conference, which was held on the basis of Tver State University. The organizing committee of the conference included representatives of partner universities under the FlexWBL project. I. G. Vanyan (NUACA) and A. G. Timofeeva (Russian State Hydrometeorological University) made speeches at the plenary session. At the same time, during the meeting the participants discussed at length the main project documents for the implementation of the Methodological Framework of the WBL in Higher Education in Russia and Armenia, prepared by experts of the Private Pedagogical University, the Diocese of Linz (Austria).
In addition, the participants of the seminar discussed the main components, innovative principles and models of WBL for use in current and future main study programmes at partner universities in line with the strategy for the development of higher education in Russia and Armenia. The Austrian experts paid special attention to the reflexive approach as one of the components of the WBL. The next event on the project will be held in early June online on the basis of the University of Klaipeda (Lithuania). One of the key issues will be the further development of a database for the main study program with WBL elements. Work in this area is carried out in the Department of Enterprise Economics and Management of the Institute of Economics and Management (TvSU).
