IMPACT - Establishing the Bologna Structure with Master's Programmes at Chalmers
Övrigt konferensbidrag, 2008

When Chalmers implemented 44 new international Master's programmes in a Bologna structure the project IMPACT was established with financing from the Chalmers foundation. The project running time was in the first round 2007­2009. The main objective of the project was to establish internationally competitive and attractive programmes for national as well as international students. The students graduating from the programmes must be competitive in an international job market. Early in the project 11 top­level goals for the project were developed in a bottom up procedure. Aiming at these goals about 100 pedagogic projects are developed, implemented and evaluated with a very strong engagement from teachers and Departments at Chalmers. For the effective progress of the project very smooth, transparent and effective administrative, application and report (web based) routines were developed. In the project around 90 % of the resources were used by direct development work or training of staff in English presentation. Every Department / Master's programme has in a continuous process in a dialogue with the project management prioritised between the top­level goals for their own effort, in their programmes. In each project the focus was on one or more top­level goals. The steering committee early focused on the immediate training of teachers in the “teaching in English” process. The focus was not only on how to speak English in front of students or to translate existing education material correctly, but also to present the material in a pedagogical way. The project will be evaluated in several ways; through presentations, project reports, workshops, student evaluation, interviews and so on.
