DIGILOG Digitally supported and virtual study practices for modern logistic systems

Erasmus+ KA203 – Strategic Partnerships for higher education 
Agreement number: 2018-KA203-06
Project period: 
Start date: 01.09.2018
End date: 31.08.2021

The goal of the DIGILOG project is to develop a study module for use in professional higher education that focuses on transportation management and logistics multinational working environment, and takes into account the ever-increasing use of digital decision support systems and simulation tools.

Target groups
• Students studying transportation and logistic
• Lecturers teaching transportation and logistics
• Research Academics in the areas of transportation and logistics (T&L)
• Other educational institutions
• T&L Engineering experts, specialists and professionals of transport related companies and consultants
• Young people with fewer opportunities

TTK University of Applied Sciences (TTK UAS)
Häme University of Applied Sciences (HAMK)
Transport and telecommunication institute (lat. Transporta un sakaru institūts – TSI)
The Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI)

Virtual and open cross-study module for digital environment of T&L systems (15 credits)
Simulation tool based on games strategy (TRELOGIC)

TTK developed study materials for the following subjects:
● Supply chain management simulation (3 credits)
● Effective warehouse design and process simulation (3 credits)

TSI developed study materials for the following subjects:
● Professional Competence of Transport Managers (3 credits)
● Game based multi-criteria decision making for T&L competence development (3 credits)

HAMK developed study materials for the following subject:
● Passenger traffic railway markets are opening to competition, case of Finland (3 credits)

VTI prepared a video exercise:
● Train driving exercise for train dispatchers (4 credits). The exercises will help students understand how train traffic and safety management issues are tackled in a realistic operational environment using simulation tools will also support subjects developed by the other partners by building bridges with the other objectives of the DIGILOG project.

Module courses were designed using Carpe Diem, a team-based, student-centered e-learning design methodology. A design team first creates a blueprint, which provides a general outline of the course, setting out goals and objectives, learning outcomes, and the manner of assessment, and then it drafts a storyboard representing the “student journey”, showing how lessons are actually carried out – how student time is spent, how resources are used, and how activities are incorporated. The course is tested and feedback gathered to further refine the storyboard.
