BET Quality Assurance Matrix
The success of BioEnergyTrain beyond the project’s lifetime critically depends on the quality of the educational offer aggregated during the project. Developing rigorous standards and implementing them throughout the project and maintaining the highest quality is therefore a critical task within BioEnergyTrain. Therefore, the BET Quality Assurance Matrix was developed.
All BET Curricula formats (lectures, case work, summer school, etc.) will be evaluated in the following categories:
- Educational standards: Every course element generated in the project will be offered to a wide audience through attendance of students from different HEIs as well as practitioners, and, eventually, through online delivery. This report sets the required high standards regarding pedagogic concepts, academic quality, and quality of supporting material.
- Practical relevance standards: An overarching objective of BioEnergyTrain is to provide education and training with high practical relevance, preparing students and attendees of curricula and training courses with skills and knowledge to compete in the job market. This report sets the standards regarding course development and monitoring in cooperation with industry.
- Strategic relevance standards: BioEnergyTrain will create pilot educational curricula and formats with the objective to share them with other educational institutions outside the core consortium of the project in order to implement the measures mandated by the SET-Plan in the field of bioenergy. This report sets the standards arisen from the strategy for implementing the SET-Plan.
The current catalogue of educational standards must be met by the curricula and all modules within as well as by the cooperative educational formats developed throughout the project to guarantee practice relevance of education according to SET Plan guidelines.
