ILHAM-EC Scientific Group and Participatory Workshop activities defining the new Master on Sustainable Land Management


In the framework of the ILHAM-EC project, coordinated by NRD-UNISS in partnership with University of Cairo, University of Alexandria, University of Zagazig, University of Damanhour (Egypt), UNIMED, ACS (ITALY), University of Leeds (UK) and Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (EL), two main events will take place in Cairo, Egypt, in November.

The Scientific Group meeting will be held in Cairo in order to define goals, objectives and structure of the new high quality Master on Sustainable Land Management and discuss project activities development for the next months. Two scientific members from each University will participate in the event.

The Participatory workshop will highlight strategies and methodologies aiming at improving teaching and learning processes. Teaching methods quality will be enhanced sharing different experiences and approaches among all the involved partners: best practices, strategies and the methodologies that could be used for improving and modernizing teaching and learning processes.  It is an exchange of experiences and best practices where traditional learning methodologies and innovative ones will be compared. As a result, a guideline on best practices in teaching will be shared among partners. The best practices will be then used by European teachers within the 10 digital technical modules that will be uploaded on the e-learning platform. The modules will provide Egyptian teachers with the necessary knowledge to allow them to teach the same topic in the new Pilot Master program. In addition, the information provided in each module will be used by Advanced Computer System’s technicians for the creation of the educational game whose content and logical frameworks will be provided by teachers.

A total of 32 Egyptian teachers and 10 Europeans will participate in the two-day activity. All the resources presented during the workshop will be uploaded on, as well as all the photos and materials.
