Professional development centres?

Each partner’s university has set up a PDC responsible for enhancing & developing relationships with professionals. Each of these PDC have their own priorities, among :

1) to turn the 3 training modules into intensive courses for professionals (6.4 − continuing education) and, if indicated by the needs assessment, into distance (eLearning) modules;

2) to propose other continuing education modules for RU/KZ;

3) to establish tools & indicators for quality assessment of the training modules;

4) to promote and attract trainees for continuing professional and teacher training (7.2);

5) to help universities develop a robust methodology for new modules/curricula development by organising training sessions on training engineering (6.3); Of course, these training sessions won’t be opened only for food science teachers, but also to teachers from all disciplines (more dissemination).

6) to carefully track the job market (6.6) and student placement (6.7) in order to act retroactively (feedback) on the contents of curricula and pedagogical methods;

7) to organise job forums that bring together professionals and students to share their experiences.
