From the 22nd to the 24th of May 2015 a training session for the ELENA project took place at the Academic Conference Centre of “Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu.
15 biology teachers from middle and high schools in Sibiu county were invited. The training session was conducted by experts from “Lucian Blaga” University, members in the project team.
They were supported by experts from Milvus NGO and from the Sibiu Canine Centre. The teachers were instructed to use the modules about the introduction of live animals – for the first time – in the learning and teaching process. The modules have been designed by academics Voichița Gheoca from the Science Faculty and Mihaela Antofie from the Agricultural Science, Food Industry and Environmental Protection Faculty.
In the near future, the trained teachers will be teaching lessons in their schools and will be drawing conclusions about their impact. At the same time, the 15 teachers will each instruct 10 other interested teachers to implement this type of lessons in their classes or extracurricular activities.
