The first academic year of EUROPROC project life is almost over, so it’s high time to sum up the preliminary results of our activities and to define future steps.
The project has been developing according to the plan. Despite some regretful changes in the project team (Natalia Kostenko’s untimely desease), we did our best to secure project’s quality.
Amongst the most significant results of our work one can point out the Basics of European Project Activities course curriculum development and accreditation by ZNU Academic Council. In order to make our course more user-friendly, we’ve created its online version on the Moodle platform. From now on, as the course has become an integral part of Master and PhD students of Natural and Exact Sciences study plan, it will be attended by 120 students annually. In the nearest future, the course is to be reviewed by external national and international experts, and the course book is to be published to promote the course implementation all over Ukraine.
The Masters of the Faculty of Biology pioneered in studying the course in 2017-2018. From February to May 2018, 73 students have successfully accomplished all the course tasks; according to internal quality monitoring, the vast majority of both students and teachers are totally satisfied with the experience gained. Throughout Summer, our team is working hard to improve the course materials and to adjust the course to labour market requirements.
