Higher Education Curricula Development on the Collaborative Economy in Europe
Higher Education Curricula Development and the Collaborative Economy in Europe (COLECO) is an EU-funded Erasmus+ project aiming to examine the workings and impacts of the collaborative economy in Europe, focusing on peer-to-peer (P2P) accommodation platforms. The latest research will inform the development of two Masters level modules, a general module on the Collaborative Economy and another module with a specific focus on P2P accommodation platforms to promote knowledge exchange and education associated with this growing and dynamic area of the economy.
This project includes six partner universities:
- Leeds Beckett University, UK (project lead)
- University of Zagreb, Croatia
- Cyprus University of Technology, Cyprus
- University of Calabria, Italy
- Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain
- Dokuz Eylul University, Turkey
This project will create both academic modules at Masters level and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) about different aspects of the collaborative economy. The educational materials will support the European agenda for Higher Education (HE) Reform by participating in mutually beneficial partnerships between EU higher education institutions and the industry through collaboration with the European Holiday Home Association. The project targets HE graduates who want to get involved in the collaborative economy as well as the general public though the eLearning platform Future Learn.
