Mariusz Głąbowski – Modern ICT teaching techniques at EUNICE European University


The European University for Customized Education (EUNICE) brings together ten public European universities located in all four European regions, i.e., Poznan University of Technology, University of Mons, University of Vaasa, University of Cantabria, University of Catania, Université Polytechnique Hauts-de-France, Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg, University of Peloponnese, Karlstad University, Polytechnic Institute of Viseu.

One of the consortium’s main goals is to create the EUNICE campus – a unique, inter-university space where students and faculty participate in market-adapted curricula. The main factors influencing the changes in teaching methods being introduced at EUNICE are physical, hybrid and virtual mobility, a strong connection to research and innovation, consideration of the local needs of the socio-economic environment, consideration of European identity and respect for the priorities of multilingualism and multiculturalism. 

At the same time, key to ensuring the highest possible quality of education while minimizing costs is the sharing of EUNICE resources and the use of state-of-the-art digital infrastructure. This goal within EUNICE has been achieved through the creation of service and information sharing platforms that allow open, instant access to resources offered by all project partners.

The talk will present the developed platforms and remote access systems. Among others, the EUNICE Virtual Lab and the EUNICE Integrated Learning Platform will be discussed. These systems are used, among others, for the 3-semester Cybersecurity education program, at the MSc level, led by Professor Mariusz Glabowski, and implemented by five EUNICE partners. The talk will be complemented by a demonstration of the capabilities of remote access solutions for network devices, providing the ability to reserve resources, control device power and console access.
