• Building community of digital learners in university and industry

    Cooperative E-learning Platform for Industrial Innovation


    CEPHEI is a capacity building Erasmus+ funding project for development and dissemination of blended learning in Industrial Innovation

    Digital nature of education

    The universities face two challenges that are big opportunities at the same time. One is the digitalization and communication paradigm. The students are digital natives and use technologies all the time while most universities practice the traditional pattern of teaching. In response to their needs, universities need to adapt learning to Millennials. Another challenge is the necessity to link the education with the practice, integrate the reality of professional innovation activities to the context of education according to the demand of industry.

    Thus, the best university of tomorrow is one that is able to orchestrate the wide diversity in the supply ofteaching materials, project-based learning in international multidisciplinary teams and real needs of
    industry and society. This project is contribute to scale up of blended and e-learning in the field of Industrial Innovation.

    With the Lappennrat University of Technology CEPHEI consortium involves 9 Partners ( LUT, UoT, KTH, MEF, SPbPU, TUSUR, GUBKIN, TJU from 6 countries (FI,NL,SE,TR,RU,CN)


    Blended learning in Industrial Innovation

    CEPHEI aims to increase the digitalization, internationalization and visibility of Industrial Innovation Education in the world scope with blended learning approaches both in Partner country universities and EU. Goal achieved by:

    1. Benchmarking, coordination and synchronization of the requirements and contents of Industrial
    Innovation. Standardization of its e-learning elements.
    2. Turning at least 50% (60 ECTS) (or equivalent in partner universities) of Industrial Innovation education into the blended form
    3. Building up the blending Labs (B-Labs) at partner universities, knowledge and technology transfer
    4. Launch of the consortium platform for Open education in Industrial Innovation that connects teachers, students and industry/business (at least 100 industrial and business partners).

    CEPHEI based learning model

    The project results in the new model for cooperation between academia and enterprise in the field of Industrial Innovation through blended learning realised through the formed standards of blended learning education for Industrial Innovation field with the experts in the field. Using the builded structure in the Non -Eu universities in the form of B-Labs. The content and infrastructure created in response to Industries. Launched on the open e-learning platform which allow to deliver blended and online course in the field for consortium universities and industry.
