Learning, action research and outreach for inclusive development - Boosting competencies in higher education, 29 Feb – 18 Mar 2016
Professionals in tertiary agricultural education are expected to prepare competent graduates ready for the job market. In addition, you are requested to do action research that contributes to innovation for food security, and provide services for rural communities that support inclusive development.
Are you ready to make your courses more interactive and interdisciplinary? How do competency based learning approaches affect the way you design your courses? How do you determine what services to provide to surrounding communities? To what extend is your research relevant and useful to farmers and agribusiness? This course helps you find the answers to these questions.
It is challenging and hands-on with a range of activities such as trainer-assisted group sessions, role play, case studies and excursions to Dutch universities.
