Goal

The goal of the project VirSTEM - Virtual technology for use in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) is to create an international freely available educational resource – online course "Basic Engineering Graphics" 3 ECTS which innovatively integrates BIM (Building Information Modelling). The course will be designed for Bachelor level Engineering students of Construction specialities, both daily and distance learners, as well as in-service training of specialists.

The VirSTEM project will use the most up-to-date information and communication technology methodologies. The emphasis will be on development and improvement of virtual learning techniques, of assessment of learning outcomes. The project will focus on creation and promotion of combined and flexible learning paths with use of groups' and mobile learning, and providing opportunities for learner's choice and creativity, supporting and feedback as drivers of his/her development.

The VirSTEM project will be carried out by the team of 5 well-known higher education institutions that teach engineering in the countries around the Baltic sea - TTK UAS Estonia, VGTU Lithuania, RTU Latvia, TAMK UAS and Metropolia UAS Finland.
