Launch of an innovative, multifunctional e-learning platform

Nowadays, it is almost impossible to consider effective and innovative teaching and learning channels without linking them with the Virtual Learning Environment, Information and Communication Technologies and tools for personalising the education for learners (e.g. B-learning). The development of electronic media, internet, along with widespread use of mobile devices and applications, resulted in a massive increase of interest in information processing and knowledge creation through electronic learning mechanisms.

In step with these educational trends, the College of Europe Natolin Campus, with its mission to foster knowledge about the European integration process, Europe’s cultural and historical heritage, and the evolution of EU policies, is putting into operation a unique electronic platform and blended learning instruments.

This comprehensive project, which is funded by the European Union with EUR 1,0 Mio, encompasses and reinforces the understanding of various EU policies, and offers a wide range of free of charge educational solutions:

1)The distance learning component, consisting of 10 knowledge-based e-learning courses and 5 skills-building courses. inter alia: Anti-Corruption, DCFTA, Human Rights Protection, IBM and Migration Policies, Effective Application for EU Funding, Fund-Raising Skills, and others.

2)An Information Database System (IDS) with systematised public information and documentation on the EU, ENP, EU-ENP relations, and best practices.

3)An online Expert Forum, enabling participants’ discussions and exchanges with experienced practitioners and scholars working on, or interested in the European Union- and ENP-related matters.

Furthermore, the online component is accompanied by a series of face-to-face sessions/workshops for 150 best performing E-Platform participants (75 from ENP-East and 75 from ENP-South) which will take place in Poland in late August 2016. The participation, as well as training materials, is free of charge (including board and lodging, and travel expenses).

Since 1 March 2016, on the website www.euforneighbourhood.eu/ you can access this free-of-charge platform offering e-learning courses enhancing the knowledge about the EU policies and EU’s relations with countries covered by the European Neighborhood Policy. This distance learning initiative forms the core part of the project “E-Platform for Neighbourhood”, financed by the European Union and implemented by the College of Europe Natolin Campus.

The Natolin Campus was established in 1992 in the aftermath of the 1989 revolutions and in anticipation of the EU’s eastern enlargement. Today, the Natolin Campus is at the cutting edge of academic study of new developments in the EU and a centre of excellence specialised in Europe’s neighbouring countries and regions.

If you have ever considered widening your knowledge on EU and ENP related issues, then you should definitely get involved in this professional and exclusive educational initiative.

The Natolin Campus of the College of Europe was established in 1992 in the aftermath of the 1989 revolutions and in anticipation of the EU’s eastern enlargement. Today, the Natolin campus is at the cutting edge of academic study of new developments in the EU and Europe’s Neighbourhood. Its European Interdisciplinary Studies programme, including courses in EU institutions, Law, Economics, Politics and Policies, attracts students from all over Europe and ENP countries who are seeking a truly multicultural experience and an international career.

The Natolin Campus is also home to two academic Chairs: the ENP Chair and the European Civilisation Chair, both established by the European Parliament and funded by the European Commission. The Chairs carry out research and academic activities in their respective fields, thus further enriching the available academic knowledge that the students can benefit from in the course of their studies at Natolin.

Located in the largest central European Member State of the EU, close to its Eastern border, Natolin’s programme allows students to become familiar with the political and socio-economic developments of Central and Eastern Europe, as well as with the new policies developed by the EU to shape its relationship with its neighbouring countries and regions. Over the course of almost 25 years of operation, the Natolin Campus has grown to be a recognised centre of excellence specialising in ENP issues.

The Natolin Campus is part of a 120-hectare historical park and nature reserve – formerly the Royal hunting palace of Natolin – situated in the southern part of Warsaw.

Warsaw, a thriving and fast-developing metropolis of 1.7 million inhabitants, boasts a wealth of history and culture, as well as intense commercial and political activity, as befits a nation of nearly 40 million people.
