The innovation and development of a professional master curriculum in the field of MDTV started during the first study visit at VSB Technical University of Ostrava. As the leader of Work Package 2.1, they shared their experience, knowledge and best practices in multimedia-related education. For professional master curricula, the three profiles were developed also with the help of the University of Tartu and the University of Ljubljana. On the other hand, the other three participating WB partners have implemented some new courses with specific orientations, in the Image Processing Module, Animation Module and Production/Post-production Module. These modules were designed for both increasing teaching and research collaborations within these countries and also EU partners. This work package was completed with the preparation of Deliverable 2.2.2 and the MDTV PM curriculum book.

The European system based on the Bologna agreement dictates the principal content of the master study at UBT. The expectation is that this system gives a wider range of choices as well as intensifies the study process for the students. The curricula offer the students’ knowledge within their speciality as well as social competencies, develop their readiness for life-long learning and create possibilities for inter-curricular transitions and research. The student workload is measured using the ECTS. In ECTS, 60 credits represent the workload for a full academic year of study. To obtain a Master’s degree at the College, the students are required to achieve a minimum of 120 credits over two years of study. The duration of master study is generally two academic years with some exceptions as defined by the national regulations in the field of Law (one year) and integrated programs (five years).
The structure of curricula at the graduate level is typically designed to offer advanced foundation knowledge, ethics and professional development knowledge, concentration/specialization knowledge, electives and research/thesis experience. The foundation knowledge is a common knowledge that all graduates should possess, regardless of their concentration or anticipated future role. The courses selected are offered in the first year of graduate study to enable the student to get the familiarity level specified in Bloom’s Taxonomy. Elective courses are offered during the first year to allow the student flexibility in mastering further knowledge and skills in anticipation of the concentration in the following year. A core course on ethics, law and communication is intended to provide some of the fundamental social, ethical and legal rules and regulations that underpin the selected discipline. The communication component of the core course is intended to enable the student to improve some of the essentials of communication in professional development. The programmes offer the flexibility for students to master a specific area of specialization in the second year of study. The research component includes a mandatory thesis to complete the programme requirements. The component is intended to provide the student with the opportunity to select a preferred mode of research and liaison with industry in the area of concentration
The development and review of curricula in the UBT takes into account the mission and vision of the institution, the educational philosophy, national educational policies and the social-economic environment within which graduates will work. Learning outcomes should be explicitly stated for each course or programme and these should be the pivot around which the whole programme is developed. The curriculum should provide a base for a broad and all-around education that integrates academic excellence, humanistic education and entrepreneurial education. The curricula should help the learner develop a passion for truth, personal freedom, moral integrity and service.
