Competencies in virtual collaboration applied for students'online project management under industry conditions - the case of POOL

Abstract : This paper presents the results of a research survey for the identification of the competency profile required to train engineering students in online project management under industry conditions and in the frame of a multinational cooperation. The complexity and the innovation of this approach consists in the enhancing existing project management practices in initial universitylevel education and in combining technical skills with soft skills training in a distributed environment that considers the needs of the labour market. The required competencies have been identified in the context of the application of virtual group collaboration and role modelling for innovative training, thus contributing to the paradigm shift in modern industry project scenarios. The training profile is a multidimensional one, considering the structuring of the competencies in the following classes: virtual collaboration, project planning and time management, online communication, project documentation and intercultural communication. Starting from these types of competencies, the curriculum and the training handbook will be developed in the near future. The activities are taking place in the frame of the Leonardo da Vinci pilot project POOL: "Project Organisation OnLine as a model of equipping engineering students with team-working and communicative competencies in a multinational setting using ICT".
