a view to assisting the Graduate School of European Studies in Albania
to improve curricular content and teaching capacities, OSFA invited
the expert of Special and Extension Programs at the Central European
University to help design a cooperation strategy. Having researched
into detail the school’s program, its teaching capacities,
admission requirements and its medium and short term plans for future
development, Mr. Schuet proposed that the school faculty visit the
CEU where they would be assisted to design a five year strategic
plan for their school.
Other activities under the OSFA intervention
1. Faculty development schemes;
2. Exchanges with schools of similar standing
3. Visiting lecturers from CEU
4. A Workshop on teaching methodologies at the graduate level
5. Constructing a website for the school.
The project will benefit not just
the School of European Studies. Given the cross departmental character
of the School, the project will improve teaching at many departments
at the Universities in which the same professors teach at the undergraduate
level. The experience collected in the process of implementing this
project is serving as positive guide in similar interventions.
