INSMER - Integrated Smart Education in Robotics
INSMER project aims to contribute to the availability of labour force which is compatible with the needs of the global labour market and able to fulfil the expectations of companies. The project enhances the economic performance of the participating countries by developing a solid platform for educating students in the field of robotics corresponding to the new paradigm of Industry 4.0.
The main components of the platform developed and piloted in INSMER project are new integrated module-based curricula for robot operator (RO) & robot-systems technician (RT), different module-based training programs for RO and RT for continual training and casebook for vocational studies and also for adult training containing modern smart learning principles and methods. These are also the results of the project which are developed together, thereby accumulating knowledge and experiences and achieving more results with less resources than would be possible if developed individually by each project partner. The project results are shared by all the partners and each partner is able to modify them according to peculiarities and special needs of its country and industry.
INSMER project helps partner educational institutions to become more familiar with the needs of Industry 4.0 and the industrial demands in the field of robotics as one important part of mechatronics. These needs will be incorporated into the curricula and adult training programs that will be developed. The case book developed in the project helps to implement new teaching methodologies that meet the needs of today’s youth as well as adults and allow them to acquire knowledge that is needed in today’s industry. The project also helps to create a base for a collaboration network that enables cooperation in designing courses and adapting new teaching methodologies as well as in exchanging information and knowledge. In addition to the project partners, the results of the project can be disseminated to other potential parties too.
