Treść głównego artykułu

Abstrakt

The article describes two initiatives between higher education institutions (HEIs) in Poland, Germany, and India, which have been carried out as a response to an increasing demand for pedagogical methodologies that enable to reach a deep level of student engagement. Active learning has been implemented in order to enrich students’ experience and equip them with skills that help to face contemporary labour market challenges. In the article, the case study methodology has been used. The subject of the analysis are two groups of students participating in initiatives presented by the article. The article takes an empirical approach; the evaluation surveys have been distributed and students evaluated the experience positively and would recommend participation to their peers. As benefits they emphasised mainly working in a culturally diverse environment, gaining useful skills, and carrying out interesting projects. The main challenges reported were remote and intercultural communication, time management and the data gathering process. The main limitation is the qualitative methodology – it does not allow the authors to form general conclusions.
