Planning Meeting Agenda and Participant List

DEVELOPING A FRAMEWORK FOR AN INTERNATIONAL FACULTY DEVELOPMENT PROJECT ON EDUCATION ABOUT RESEARCH IN THE LIFE SCIENCES WITH DUAL USE POTENTIAL

May 30-June 1, 2011

TWAS, the academy of sciences for the developing world

Trieste, Italy

AGENDA

May 29: Informal reception/dinner

May 30: Relevant topics to the Education Institute and the report

The day will begin with an overview of the topics of the meeting through a series of presentations and discussions and will move on to focus on educational models of active learning. After the afternoon break, we will switch to modeling active participation techniques by engaging with an actual case study.
