EC recommendations on HERBS, october 2007


In

order

to

achieve

more

potential

future

employers

in

the

field

of

biotechnology

and

environmental

sector



Involvement

of

market

stakeholders,

not

limited

to

dissemination

of

project

results

and

forums,

but

active

collaboration

at

the

stage

of

redefining

the

courses

and

curriculum



Better

matching

the

needs

of

particular

enterprises

What we had to do, could do, and what we did:

Adaptations and modifications in the new curriculum


based on


economy needs (strategies)


labor market statistics


experience of former students


EU recomendations:


Biotechnology


Environment


Specialization (
for Medicine, pharmacy, industry)


Flexible programs for teaching reform in
primary and secondary schools







Adaptations and modifications in the new curriculum

Academic specialization



after

Master level, 60 ECTS, 3 modules


directly linked to labor market needs


Genetics


for those employed in medical
institutions in genetics sector


Microbiology



quality control in pharmaceutical
sector


Immunology with microbiology

for those employed
in medical institutions

Adaptations and modifications in the new curriculum


Teaching

in primary and secondary schools


Law constraints


Possible changes


Years of education


Obligate ECTS in PPM


Old curriculum


Chemistry/biology teachers for primary schools


New curriculum


at Master level teachers for primary and
secondary schools

matching the
needs

of particular enterprises

to the

competence

of graduates


What we did…



spring 2008, meeting with former students,
professionals in different companies who started
career with diploma from Faculty of Biology


their experience and opinions, comparing their
previous curricula and new proposal


they work in various sectors: Ministries,industry,
education, medicine, pharmacy, agriculture, private
labs, international lab equipment companies,
museums, natl. parks...


different competences needed for different jobs



Outcome No. 7

Dissemination of project experience and results
