COOPERATION AND COMMUNICATION

The PMC steers the project & intervenes as necessary to readjust the project to the context, ensure consistent communication between partners and the organisation of Committee meetings.
Didactic and Scientific Working Group (DSWG)
Information Literacy Training Working Group (ILTWG)
Information Literacy Module Working Group (ILMWG)
Evaluation Working Group (EWG)
Local activities of partner universities and non academic/society partner (e.g. exchange of information, training, equipment etc.) are supported by the contact person for each partner. The contact person champions and highlights the project objectives & coordinates human resources for the success for the project. Working Groups ensure the various components of the project – management, development, quality control etc. are followed through effectively. Roles, methods etc are defined by the Consortium agreement.
Each partner is represented on each Working Group and Committee of the project.
Other RU, KZ & CN partners participate in Working Groups and form local committee structures to ensure the dissemination of project results and the implementation of project initiatives in PC universities and in society at large. This is achieved through local program committees, the participation in design & delivery of the DIREKT Curriculum, running of Information Literacy trainings & workshops, trainings of trainers and by helping form networks of experts & enthusiasts in PC‘s Universities and locally to enable awareness and rollout of the new initiatives in RF, KZ, CH HEI’s and in Society.
Project ownership is ensured as both EU and PC institutions participate and contribute to the design and the implementation of the DIREKT Modular Curriculum although this process is led by EU partners, particularly TU Dresden & LIT. EU partners also implement the English for Specific Purposes training as part of the DIREKT Curriculum Training.
PC institutions are involved in the design, pilot, evaluation, accreditation & dissemination of the DIREKT project & DIREKT Curriculum supported by RU partner NEICON & Associate Partners Arbicon, CSL (KZ), and CNIC (CN). They promote DIREKT in their universities, cities, regionally and will work together and disseminate at national level. A strategy for Cross Border Relations is drafted at the beginning of the project and agreed by all RF, KN, CN partners so as to ensure good cross border communication and dissemination incorporating Associate Partners.
