– Improvement of the curricula we offer in Plant Sciences for graduate students.
The needs of future employers have been analyzed: Courses content will be modified to take them into account. New teaching methods were shared in the network and tested during one Summer School held in Sweden in 2021. Documentation has been prepared to get a ‘Quality Label’ certification for our curricula in Applied Plant Sciences, including a definition of learning outcomes in Applied Plant Sciences.
– Facilitation of student mobility in Europe.
We promote opportunities for Master’s students in Applied Plant Sciences to study abroad in one of the 7 universities that are part of the ESCAPAdE project. A user-friendly online mobility tool developed during the project provides information on course content in order for students to devise a sound Erasmus stay abroad project, adapted to their professional needs.
Five work-packages have been implemented:
i) map and diffusion of the diversity in Applied Plant Sciences educational programmes within our network;
ii) Identification of professional needs in this domain;
iii) construction of renewed pedagogical methods;
iv) dissemination planning of the project;
v) transversal tasks.
