The seminar for teachers on the topic of innovative teaching methodologies for Youth and Young in the framework of the ERASMUS+ project 585596-EPP-1-2017-1-DE-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP “Fostering Internationalisation in AgRicultural Engineering in Iran and Russia [FARmER]” took place from 26 to 30 November in L'Aquila, Italy. Consortium members from Slovakia, Iran, Germany and Russia participated in the activities organised by the University of L’Aquila (UNIVAQ). Italian colleagues have shared their experience in individual and group work of students at the university and in cooperation with other international universities and thus initiated a productive discussion. The participants have visited the research laboratories of the UNIVAQ and had the opportunity to get acquainted with the implementation of e-learning concept by the university.
An important agenda item at the meeting was the preparation and implementation of the summer school "Sustainable Agriculture" at the partner universities. The university responsible for the development of a web-based Education Network among institutions was determined. The software platform was chosen for the implementation of the summer school. The courses, which have to be developed for the summer school, and forms of the assessment were specified.
In addition, the developed curricula for the master’s programme "Agromechatronics", which is to be available next year for Bachelor graduates at the Partner Universities, were discussed in detail.
