Guidelines and Best Practices for Research-Based Teaching

The third UPSKILLS multiplier event – November 4, 2022, 10:00 – 17:00 (CEST)

The registration for this event is now open!

WHAT

In this one-day event, we share the guidelines and best practices for incorporating research and research infrastructures into teaching developed in the UPSKILLS project. The first part of the programme will present the guidelines, whereas the second part will show how they have been implemented in the curricula by the consortium partners. Furthermore, we will address the relationship between research and the industry, and show how typical problems encountered in industry workflows have been integrated into students’ assignments. Finally, we will close the event by demonstrating how the learning content produced in UPSKILLS can be reused and integrated into the university curricula.


WHY

Technology giants such as Google, Amazon, and Facebook, all work with language data and the demand for research skills in language-related domains is constantly growing. The goal of the UPSKILLS project is to identify and tackle the gaps in digital skills through the development of a new curriculum component and supporting the embedding of adequate materials in existing programmes to prepare linguistics and language students for today’s jobs in the language industry. The main objective of this multiplier event is to inform the participants about the resources generated in the project, exchange best practices and collect feedback.
