||As a response to the strategic goal of boosting enrolment in technical fields of study in order to foster innovative knowledge-based economy, marked by Education Strategy in the Republic of Serbia until 2020, the project has wider objective to increase attractiveness of engineering education through innovative teaching methods as well as trough the strengthening of university-secondary vocational schools collaboration. The innovation off teaching method will be carried out through networking of remote engineering laboratories established at partner HE institution. The established network will be aimed for sharing and exchanging remote engineering experiments as open educational resources of the Library of Remote Experiments, exchanging knowledge, experience and innovative practices of engineering education as well as for secondary vocational schools teacher training in using resources of the Library in order to improve engineering teaching at secondary education level and making it more effective and interesting for their pupils and influence them to think about the possibility of following a career in engineering.
ACADEMIC / TRAINING CONTENT
Remote experimentation laboratories that will be established at particular HE institutions, would be based on real equipment experimentation as a core component of engineering education as well virtual experiments and will be available to all users of NeReLa network via the Internet. EU good practice in remote engineering laboratories networks (DEV1.1) and existing remote experimentation within engineering curricula at partner HE institutions will be analyzed for indicating the ways of improving remote experimentation within particular curricula in specific engineering disciplines (DEV1.2 - 1.4). The technical infrastructure for supporting remote experimentation at each partner university will be provided (DEV2.1). Established network of remote labs (DEV2.2) will integrate the engineering experiments existing in particul
