This project responds to the need for and current absence of a truly comprehensive curriculum on social security. The latter means that all disciplinary (law, economics and social policy) and national perspectives are combined into one EU-wide curriculum. The only way to develop a widely accessible, comprehensive and European curriculum is to work with the virtual exchange of courses between different European universities. The project therefore envisages three objectives: 1) developing a joint format for virtual course exchange, 2) creating a joint curriculum and 3) broadening academic and professional networks. In order to attain these objectives, the project activities are divided into six Intellectual Outputs: 1) surveys of needs, expectations, best practices and evaluation amongst the organizations and participants involved, 2) IT development of a format as well as the selection of on-line tools for teacher-student interaction and an open on-line platform, 3) specialized pedagogic and didactic support, 4) a feasibility study into the establishment of a fully recognized and accredited blended Master in European Social Security, 5) joint curriculum-building and 6) dissemination and networking. The participating organizations are selected on the basis of their expertise to lead at least one of the Intellectual Outputs as well as their offer of courses for virtual exchange. The four participating organizations are universities (the KU Leuven, the University of Ljubljana and the University of Copenhagen) and one research center (CECL Athens). A second ring of satellite contributors is foreseen. They will not implement an Intellectual Output but will offer and accept courses for virtual exchange. From these different organisations, teachers are asked to redevelop their courses for virtual exchange, based on IT, pedagogic/didactic trainings, formats and support. These courses are open to registered students, with a selection of courses also offered to broader target groups (e.g. PhD researchers, professionals, policy-makers). As regards the management of project activities, a bottom-up approach was chosen. This means that each of the four participating organisations is responsible for one (or more) Intellectual Output(s) and jointly decide in the Project Board. However, to allow for daily management, the KU Leuven will coordinate the project, as delegated by the Project Board to the Project Manager. As regards the implementation of the learning activities themselves, the methodology shall be based on a strong pedagogic, didactic and technical format developed by experts in these areas. They shall combine these different aspects into one student-centered approach. The methodology for redeveloping current courses for virtual exchange is therefore that the newly developed format is explained to the involved teachers in trainings, after which they will implement it and can always count on the support and quality monitoring by the technical and pedagogic/didactic professionals. In the end, this project envisages two broad results: 1) multidisciplinary and cross-border course exchange on European social security based on a format and 2) a feasibility study into a fully recognized and accredited blended Master in European social security. The longer term benefits of this project for the participating organisations is that they may offer a fully integrated programme on European social security for many years to follow. In that sense, this project is the beginning of a process in which more organisations may join this initiative and more students can benefit from this innovative form of teaching. The long term benefits are also the increased likelihood that the experiences may help this type of blended teaching in other educational networks, the increased priority for it in policy-making and the increased knowhow on social security.
