Film represents a unique European heritage and a cultural plus that should be valued. The program addresses clear innovation skills gaps that were identified in this area of training, but goes beyond that by ensuring that these schools distinctive training strategies focused on project development and creativity can be successfully transferred to the industry via innovative learning and knowledge distribution and collaboration platforms. CIALK project main objective is the transfer of creative and innovative skills and knowledge between European training organizations working in the area of film and media teaching and companies in the film, ICT and media industry, via the development of new curricula, courses and teaching materials amongst consortium members. CIAKL project sees film and media schools as engines of creativity that can highly benefit from the innovation brought about by learning technologies and a change in students and staff mindset that promotes business and entrepreneurship oriented attitudes.
a) Learning technologies – by promoting the joint development of curricula, courses and materials supported on learning technologies;
b) Collaboration – by promoting the creation of shared knowledge spaces between academia and business companies integrated in the consortium, but also between and with other stakeholders in the target industry;
The Consortium that promotes the project integrates a strong linguistic and cultural variety of members that assure the European dimension of the project and its adherence to the general learning environment in this area in Europe. Future impacts of the project include the dissemination amongst European training organizations in this area of all materials and solutions developed throughout the project and the consequences staff and students mobility will have in terms of employability and the generation of new attitudes towards entrepreneurship and innovation.
