It was a pleasure for me to participate in the fourth EduCamp Training of Trainers Module on “Agriculture”. The Training took place from September 3 to 7 in Torres Vedras, a small town about 40km outside Lisbon/ Portugal and was organised by CEIFA ambiente. This training was absolutely enjoyable for me since I am working in the academia in the same field as a lecturer in the Faculty of Agriculture at Alexandria University.
Organized and hosted by Zagazig University, an EduCamp project dissemination activity took place on 29th September 2012 under the theme of E-learning Campaign.
The event aimed at addressing the role of innovative teaching tools in schools and the importance of their integration within the classroom teaching. E-learning concept in specific was the main focus of the session where different examples were presented and discussed with the participants.
Why should small and medium sized enterprises participate in EU funded education project? This was one of the key questions that was raised at the Open Erasmus Day that was organized by the Portuguese Life-Long-Learning Agency (PROALV) on September 26, 2012.
During an event of the Portuguese Life-Long-Learning Agency (PROALV), EduCamp will be one of the two projects to be presented in Lisbon on September 26, 2012. The Agency represents several European Programms in Portugal. Among others Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, and Tempus will be presented. For its ambitious goals and the good results achieved so far, the EduCamp project has been selected as an example to be presented during the event. One of the objectives of the event is to make transparent why and how institutions that do not belong to universities are involved in such type of projects. EduCamp partner CEIFA has been invited to explain its role in the project, and to speak about the motivations and expectations of a SME in this project.
