Teachers Training

Training of university lecturers is an important part (WP3) of the project, “Curriculum Development for Sustainable Seafood and Nutrition Security (SSNS). The project team has designed the project realizing the problem that aquaculture/Fisheries programs are suffering from low enrollment, when more experts and skillful workforce is needed to fullfil the human resource need for seafood industry, which is growing rapidly and often encountering several problems. The project has raised several issues of academic institutions, especially in the field of aquaculture and fisheries, behind not being enough attraction among students. For examples, weak curricula, boring traditional teaching learning methods applied mainly depending on class lectures, and most important is untrained teachers with limited knowledge and skills in student centred teaching/learning. Realizing the special need for the capacity development of universities and lecturers, SSNS project is engaging 54 lecturers from Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam, and about 25 lecturers from Europe in this initiative. As a part of the curriculum development and capacity development process, two study visits and workshops were organized in Europe; namely, NTNU, Norway and University of Stirling, UK where they have learned how teaching learning has been made effective and how they have been attractive among the students from around the world. Each of the Asian university lectures has developed a new course for their MSc degree curriculum, and also a vocational education-training (VET) course. They need to deliver the courses differently and more effectively than before so that their curricula or courses attract more students and trainees. The project has a plan (WP3) to assist them while they are on-the-job in their own countries. Various training methods and tools will be used for the training of the teachers. The training has been tentatively scheduled as
