E-Learning: Sustainability, Environment and Renewable Energy, a Multinational Training Pilot Module at the Postgraduate Level
A Pilot Module will be implemented by 4 JELARE project?s partners: Bolivia, Brazil, Guatemala and Latvia. A research was made by them in their own countries where a scarcity of multidisciplinary programs was detected at the Postgraduate level. The common characteristic was the need to modernize the curriculum by introducing a more diverse perspective. The student profile at the end should aim to provide skills to the private as well as the public, non-governmental and academic sectors. The pensum will consist of 13 courses inferred from an analysis of the competencies needed, along three modules: Sustainability, Environment and Renewable Energy (with courses such as Sociology of Development and Global Challenges, Environment and Sustainable Development, Energy Matrix Planning, Energy Economics, Policies and Regulations on Energy and Environment and courses mainly devoted to renewable energy and their management). The Postgraduate Program is to be implemented in 4 trimesters. On-line modalities will be introduced where self-study, cooperation and tutorial guidelines will be highlighted. The scheme will open activities by July 1st 2011; the institutional framework for implementation is being worked out among all interested partners at present.
