innovations in higher education in Emilia-Romagna “

EMILIA ROMÀNA – The aim of the research

The research activity is necessary to address and analyze the ongoing processes of change and innovation in the following areas.

  1. The changes that take place in the organization of production, on the one hand, and of work, on the other.

In fact, the effects of new technologies seem to be relevant light I widespreadchanges in the marketing and distribution of products and services, the gradual departure of young workers from companies characterized by traditional technologies and work organization, the search for new flexible and digital jobs, with more time for others activities also in areas where economic interests do not predominate. .

  1. Changes in the organization of educational and technical training cycles beyond the school stage, before access to university training.

To do this, we must take into account some areas of change and innovation that are expanding and strengthening:

  • the crisis and the transformation of vocational training centers that supported the higher technical and vocational training cycles of the school system
  • l Changes and integration in schools technique on the one hand and education professional of the other
  • the demand of the companies towards the centers of technical and professional education of young people formed with business orientation, also by means of practices during and extracurricular.
  • the implementation of new initiatives of high-level education and technical and vocational training based on territorial agreements between: training entities linked to companies, territorial school offices in charge of technical and vocational education centers, organizations representatives of companies in different sectors, applications research centers of universities, from which come the courses of higher technical education and training (ICTS).
  • expansion and differentiation of access routes to university training
  • reconfiguration of the relations of communication, exchange and collaboration with the centers of employment distributed by all the territory.
  1. It is therefore necessary to pay increasing attention to the transition to a new system of higher technical and vocational training, which is linked to basic school education and university training.

From this, specific research objectives can be extracted:

  • current agreements between the Region, technical and vocational education institutes (ITS), affiliated vocational training bodies, representative bodies of companies.
  • initiatives activated by centers and structures aimed at activating -with agreements with the different partners- the Training Cycles and Higher Technical Education (IFTS), the productive sectors involved, the presence and distribution of these centers in the different territories of the region .
  • The programs and projects activated by the different centers for the promotion and management of Ifts courses and their link with the productive sectors of the regional economy
  • the experimental evaluation of the results produced by the centers and headquarters of the IFTS courses present in the region
  • the evaluation of the relations of interaction and integration between the territorial school systems and the training and research centers of the universities present in the Region.
