Dear SPACE members,

It is my pleasure to invite you to the SPACE conference, which will be held in Porto from April 26 till 28th April 2017, at ISCAP / IPP.

As the Dean of the Accounting and Business School of the Polytechnic Institute of Porto, it is a great honour to host this event of the SPACE network of higher education institutions. Our institution has been involved in this network for a long time and I must say that part of the credit of our internationalization is due to the initiatives, experience, projects and benefits that membership can offer.

During the conference, participants will have the opportunity to attend workshops, to meet researchers, to network and get to know the most updated research in different areas. Keynote speakers are also an excellent reason to participate. They will share their knowledge concerning practical solutions to be implemented in teachers’ classes as well as share their professional experience. Moreover, Porto has been recognized as one of the Best Touristic European Destinations. And if it was not for other reasons, Porto itself if a reason enough for someone to visit the city.

Our School as more than 4300 students and about 280 teachers. It is considered the most International School of the Polytechnic of Porto. We offer several undergraduate and graduate programs related with accounting, business, communication, marketing, entrepreneurship and languages. We have 2 research centres – one related with intercultural studies and the other one focused on organizational and social studies. In the last 10 years we have already participated in more than 35 European projects, both as coordinator and as a partner. SPACE Conference will be, without doubt, an excellent opportunity to improve knowledge sharing, networking and research and project development.

Please, accept our invitation and join us here, in this historical city

Best regards,

Olimpio Castilho

Dean

Several double Diplomas have been developed during the last years with some of our partners too.

It is a national reference as far as business sciences are concerned, namely through the courses of Enterprise Simulation (ES) which, besides exempting students from the internship required to access the Chamber of Chartered Accountants, aims to provide a demanding, complex, universal and technologically advanced business environment. Apart from this, ISCAP is equipped with modern and technologically advanced Multimedia, Education and Marketing Centers.

Over the years ISCAP has tried to increase its international experience and has developed a broad network of global partnerships and has been a partner is several international networks, such as AFECA, SPACE, EdiNeb, Acinnet and others.

Moreover, we have been managing since long years SOCRATES/Life Long Learning/ ERASMUS+ Program, namely many ERASMUS, MINERVA, LEONARDO and GRUNDTVIG projects.

The number of outgoing and incoming students (both Erasmus, exchange, and free-mover) has increased significantly over the years. Besides, during our International Weeks we welcome visiting lecturers and our partners’ representatives, which has contributed to the “Internationalisation at Home” process and to the establishment of enduring academic and scientific bonds amongst lecturers and researchers.

At ISCAP, we take both the academic and personal needs of our international students and lecturers very seriously, and we continually strive to provide a dynamic and stimulating teaching and learning environment.

We look forward to meeting you.

“Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship – A game-based and mindset focused approach for teaching and learning entrepreneurship”

Entrepreneurship is often thought of as the act of commercializing an innovation. In modern open economies, entrepreneurship is one of the key aspects for economic growth. The teaching and learning entrepreneurship is therefore of importance. Schools, colleges and universities can play an important role by including entrepreneurship and innovation in their curricula. Theory, Practice as well as Mindset aspects are of importance when students learn about entrepreneurship. The Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship (BMoE) stresses the importance of including aspects related to Mindset, and uses games as a vehicle for including it in the entrepreneurship education. The game-based teaching approach, including both actions and reflections, lets the students explore his/her current mindset and compare it with that of successful entrepreneurs.

“What we look for in young graduates and what we actually find”

Otto Reisinger will talk about  the qualities young (potential) leaders should have and how he selects them for a multinational enterprise like Swarovski.

Nevertheless, he states that not everybody can become a leader and experts like e.g. business analysts are also needed and do not have a lower status than leaders. The most important decision according to him is to find the right career for young graduates.

In the question and answer part he will be happy to answer all questions from the audience.

“Brexit: Opportunity or Threat – an exchange of views”

The result of the referendum in the UK on 23 June 2016 seemed to take both sides of the debate by surprise. Public reaction since then has ranged from ecstasy and celebration to denial and despair. At the time of writing at least, we seem to have little idea as to the future relationship between the UK and the EU. And while for many life may well go on as usual, for the sector in which we work there could be substantial changes with regard to research, staff/student mobility, employment and funding.

This brief session will explore the background to Brexit in the context of other world events – why it happened and why, perhaps, it was inevitable – and look at possible implications and even eventual opportunities for collaboration in the HE sector.

So far, those tasked with implementing Brexit either don’t know or are not sharing anything concrete regarding the future. Therefore, we cannot expect ourselves to come to any firm conclusions at this stage. But with the enormous goodwill that exists between different nations in this sector, we can surely endeavour to maintain and build on our collaborative assets built up over the past decades.

“(Digital) Storytelling in Higher Education”

Education today, namely HE, is not merely about transferring consolidated or developed knowledge. There is a need for a range of generic skills that are relevant for society, essential for employability, and overall citizenship such as applying knowledge in practice; adapting to new situations; information management skills; autonomy; team work; organising and planning; oral and written communication; without ignoring interpersonal skills.
I believe Digital Storytelling is the adhesive force capable of aggregating what research has identified as core. DS is capable of integrating different literacies and language skills, as it combines multimedia researching, production and presentation skills with more traditional activities like writing and oral production skills. In practice, DS compels content-creators to interpret, organize, prioritise, and make meaning of scattered events. The preparation and creation phase requires searching for and collecting audio and visual materials, such as images, photos and soundtrack, to support the story and then combine and organize the multiple elements to create the desired effect. It fosters critical thinking about the meaning and effectiveness of multiple modes (elements) and their combination. DS is a personal self-representation, mediated by its limits. Length restrictions foster new ways of thinking, creativity and imagination. DS is also user-generated media, placing the focus on the creator (students, for example). In HE when students create stories, it gives them leeway to cater to their own individual interests and learning styles, toward a more personalised learning context. This however, changes classroom dynamics and relationships, putting a spin in traditional lectured-based HE classrooms.
The Workshop will draw on the California Model:
1. We will identify the key elements for effective digital stories;
2. Create a short digital (1-2 minutes);
3. Present the stories created.
