WP1 – Deliverable 1.1 – Analysis on MDTV situation in Albania and Kosovo
The preparation phase of the project consists on the study and analysis of the general situation related to MDTV area in Albanian and Kosovo. Needs and problems related to the field will be defined by the partner institutions in both Western Balkan countries. Different studies on the specific actual advantages and disadvantages will be done and reported. An analysis on the existing programmes in EU countries will be done and this will help in the development and implementation of new ideas related to MDTV area. UBT is the leader of this phase and will coordinate the activities related to this WP. Each WB HEIs involved will be responsible for analysing the current general MDTV situation.

WP2 – Deliverable 2.1.2_Restructured MDTV Bachelor degree curriculum
The existing bachelor MDTV program was opened as a result of a previous TEMPUS project. The curriculum was designed some years ago according to the criteria defined. However, during its implementation, it has been observed that certain changes should be done to meet the needs of the country in this field. For this reason, a general review of the existing program and its improvement is of outmost importance. To achieve this, EU consortium members and industry partners will be consulted regularly so that improvement is done in the best possible way. The first workshop (Learning from EU expertise in MDTV area) of the proposed project will be realized in Albania at the premises of the leading institution to decide on the specific guidelines that should be taken into consideration while revising the curriculum. Then, the pre-specified working group of AMU and EPOKAUNI HEIs will continue working on their curriculum. Course types and syllabi will be revised and reconsidered during this phase of the project. Dependent on the needs specified in the preparation phase, some new courses may be added or replaced with other course of the existent MDTV curriculum. The curriculum will be carefully and comprehensively studied by especially the representatives of the leading institution and Epoka university members. All the decisions made will be supervised, controlled and consulted with the EU members of this project.
WP2 – Deliverable 2.2.2_Innovating PM curriculum
AMU as the leading institution to offer PM in MDTV; will develop a new curriculum for this aim. While innovating and developing the MDTV PM curriculum partners from industry will be consulted to a high extent in order to harmonize competence of future experts with industry needs. Since the PM curriculum will be implemented only at AMU, the main members of the working group selected to do the activities will be from this institution. The main inputs to be used in this WP2-2 will be existing models of other EU MDTV related graduate program, expertise from EU partners, industry standards and requirements. All the activities will be performed under the supervision and approval of EU partners. A report related to this activity will be prepared and published. The Deliverable 2.2.2 will contain competences and learning outcomes for MDTV professional master studies, which will be implemented at the leading institution as a continuation of their bachelor program in MDTV area.
WP3 – DIMTV Quality Control and Monitoring Manual
The new offered PM in MDTV has to undergo the accreditation process and has to be accepted at national and international levels. Therefore, assurance of the quality of the project activities, its deliverables and outcomes is of outmost importance. Quality of project activity management and financial management are among the most important factors that will influence the whole project results. For this reason, all the activities and their specific deliverables will be under the control and they will be checked during the whole project duration. It is the Steering Committee the body that will ensure a reliable and accurate quality control and monitoring. Initially, internal evaluation will be done by the internal staff members of MDTV program at all the institutions offering it. This will be realised for both the revised Bachelor and the new Professional Master programs. Then, the necessary precautions will be taken for ensuring good quality programs and according to the required criteria and standards. After the internal evaluation, a peer review will be done by the EU experts in the field.
