Participation in Projects

European Projects:

WELANIMAL: A new approach on different aspects of welfare, environment and food interactions in Central and Southeastern Europe with the use of ICT.The aim of the project is to use E-learning and ICT methods to achieve fast and sufficient training for target groups and end users, Leonardo Da Vinci Comunity Vocational Training Action Project ( LLP-LdV-TOI-2007-TR-002), 2007-2010 (See http://welanimal.com for an extended description)

WELFOOD (Promoting quality assurance in animal WELfare - environment - FOOD quality interaction studies through upgraded eLearning) Leonardo Da Vinci Comunity Vocational Training Action Project (n 2004 - L-B-PP-170001), 2004-2006

TEI Coordinator for the project MENU (Model for a European Networked University for e-learning), November 2001 - December 2003. The MENU project sets out to create a model for a European Networked (Virtual) University, providing a variety of e-learning opportunities. The model includes an organisational structure, a quality assurance system, examples of joint courses and study programmes across institutional borders, guidelines and a demonstrator of a practical e-learning environment. (Funded by EU under e-Learning Initiative, Project No 2002-0510/001-001 EDU-ELEARN (See http://www.hsh.no/menu for an extended description)

TEI Coordinator for the project CIOC (Competence development in International Oriented Companies), January 2001 - December 2002. The project contributed in the development of models for integration of organizational and competence development in knowledge based companies, having branches across Europe and aiming to train their employees through Open and Distance Learning. Siemens Metering/Norway acted as a specific test bench for adjusting and testing of such models. (Funded by The Norwegian Government)

TEI Coordinator for the project EuroCompetence, September 1998 - August 2000. The objective of EuroCompetence was to develop and try out a flexible Open and Distance Learning model for further studies for Adult learners. This model covered the need for competence among employees in Industry and Public sector that need to collaborate with other companies and institutions in Europe.. (Funded by Socrates Programme, Action 2, Chapter III) (See http://www.tisip.no/ec for an extended description)

TEI Coordinator for the project DoODL (Dissemination of Open and Distance Learning) September 1996- August 1998. The aim of DoODL was to define models for collaboration between European academic institutions so they can function as centres for each other in the field of ODL. (Funded by Socrates Programme, Action 2, Chapter III) (See http://www.idb.hist.no/doodl/ for an extended description)

VSX (Virtual Student Exchanges) project: Development of ICT based Synchronous and Asynchronous Open and Distance Learning courses in the context of the European program Netd@ys, in collaboration with Hogeschool Gent, Belgium

IRIS-Initiative (Inter Regional Information Society-Initiative). A feasibility study on the Development of Open and Distance Learning (ODL) in the Region of Central Macedonia, 1996
