March 27th 2017Events
Within the scope of the NutriSEA Project (Erasmus+ Capacity Building for Higher Education), U.Porto hosted from 27th to 31st of March the second training sessions on Internationalisation and Pedagogics.
The former was targeted at 10 staff members from the International Office of six different Higher Education Institutions from Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam. It included training in several relevant topics such as international projects’ financial management, local management of international cooperation activities, institutional agreements for the development of cooperation, modernization and innovation using digital tools, among others.
The latter was targeted at six academic staff members of six Higher Education Institutions from the same countries and counted with the collaboration of several internal and also external trainers. The agenda included sessions such as “Building multiple-choice questions – Basic principles”, “Educational Technologies, Google Classroom and other platforms”, “Quality assessment of multiple choice exams”, “Teaching strategies for large classes”, among others.
This was also the opportunity for the NutriSEA participants to network with Higher Education Institutions’ representatives from all over the world, as the trainings were held simultaneously with one further edition of the U.Porto InterWeek.
The NutriSEA project aims to build human resources capacity to ensure a sustainable food value chain model based on entrepreneurship and creating added value to the natural resources supporting food production in Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar). Furthermore the project aims to enhance university-enterprise cooperation as well as regional and (inter)national cooperation and networking.

SWC Scientific World Conceptions
GENOMICS: PHILOSOPHY, ETHICS AND POLICY
Vienna, July 3-14, 2017

The two-week course explores conceptual innovations that draw these co-productive processes into view, as well as the histories and philosophies that deepen our understandings of not just genomics, but also our ever elusive efforts to make sense of life.
Course fee: EUR 880,-
Lodging in student dormitories is available at approximately EUR 400-450 for the whole duration of the course.
Application deadline: February 15, 2017 (Later applications may be considered if space is still available)
