Objective 1: Needs Analysis
Objective 2: Shadowing and exchange of good practices
objective 3: Capacity-Building activities
On the one hand, the training of professors and staff took place over two weeks during two in-person workshops. The activities address topics such as the regulations of StEER on campuses, funding and budgeting, and all topics covered during the shadowing and good practices activities and that need specific trainings. On the other hand, capacity-building activities for students took place in Lebanon, France and online. They included, joint sessions for all students involved in StEER teams, then through different teaching and learning support, such as a course module taught by a guest lecturer, project-based learning and expert trainings. The curriculum and content of the capacity-building activities for students result in the development of training manuals, and of a StEER MOOC that ensures the proper dissemination of these trainings to students from other institutions, beyond the consortium.
objective 4: Development of the StEER Structures in the Lebanese institutions and at national-level
In this phase, the teams of students in charge of the StEER on each Lebanese campus and
at national-level are constituted before the trainings. Once they have started the trainings and signed the pledges, they start developing the
structures that best suit their needs and the requirements of their universities.
They organize meetings and work sessions in cooperation with the trained professors and staff in order to set all dimensions of these structures: priorities, levels of representation and involvement, scope of responsibilities, the designation/voting schemes, programs, calendar of activities, partnerships with stakeholders etc.
The Student Affairs Offices/Services whose staff was trained during the WP3 work on updating their missions and action plans. They are also mentored and supported by students from the EU partner institutions.
At the national-level, a national student representation structure will be established at the end of the project to address the needs and expectations of the majority of Lebanese students. Higher Education Institutions from all over Lebanon can join this structure.
