Activity Synopsis (ID# 28843) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) After the Conference dedicated to ECTS and Learning Outcomes held in Belgrade end of November 2009 representatives of the Faculty of Agriculture requested Project assistance in further developing their skills regarding two key topics – learning outcomes and ECTS. End of December 2009, at the Faculty of Agriculture, workshop dedicated to the requested issues of ECTS and learning outcomes was held. It was an interactive event that after brief experts’ outlines opened space for deliberations on the actual practice at the Faculty and future steps to improve it. Lively discussion developed showing main shortcomings in the actual practice of allocating ECTS to different subject and designing learning outcomes. In addition issue of improving quality at the Faculty was also raised and participants advised how to undertake the proper self-evaluation that can help them improve the quality at their Faculty. 
Output/Results Teaching staff both experienced / senior and younger ones through whole day discussions realized that many steps should be undertaken in the near future in order to improve quality of the Faculty. Strategy and action plan should be developed, and definitely actions to assess once again ECTS allocated to different subject and learning outcomes prepared so far should be undertaken / planned. It was obvious that more meetings / discussions should take place not only at this but at all other HEIs in Serbia if ECTS and learning outcomes are to be implemented correctly and justly.

Conclusions/Follow Up Unfortunately although there is a need for further trainings at different faculties / universities no follow up is possible due to the Project finalization on 31 December 2009.
