The project will renew the study programmes “Graphic Design”, “Photographic Technology” and “Interactive Design”, changing the name of the latter programme to “Multimedia Design”.
The training and internships provided by the project will pave the way for the updating of curricula focused on student learning outcomes, the introduction of new teaching methods, and the development of new teaching methodologies and teaching materials.
Target groups – lecturers and students of the Faculty of Design, Vilnius College of Technologies and Design.

Project results:
By achieving the goals and objectives of the project, the students of the Faculty of Design of Vilnius College of Technologies and Design should acquire sufficient competences to be able to successfully continue their studies, work and pursue careers in different countries.
The content of the renewed programmes will be results-oriented and adapted to the flexible introduction or modification of new disciplines, depending on technological change and market needs, and will allow for the widespread use of innovative teaching/learning methods: project-based, problem-oriented, blended, etc. All this will bring the studies of Vilnius College of Technologies and Design closer to the standards of foreign schools of design and multimedia and will facilitate the integration of the College’s students (including students from foreign countries) into other higher education institutions and the international market.
