Aim of the group

The group has met twice and is currently developing and refining the framework for this award. A review of existing training within Europe has been undertaken, and a report produced.

Central to the Eurolecturer award is construction of a website which will contain links to videos of lectures in chemistry and chemical engineering and interviews with authors of chapters in Innovative Methods of Teaching and Learning Chemistry in Higher Education.

The assessment process is currently being developed, but will include the requirement to produce an educational resource in collaboration with a colleague from a different country. It is envisaged that pairs of candidates will be supported by a mentor from a third country, thus enhancing the European dimension of teaching. The scheme will be formally launched at the plenary meeting in Bratislava where potential candidates will be invited to come forward. Before then work is concentrating on completion of the website and formalisation of the procedure. The first certificates will be presented at the 2012 plenary meeting.

Members of teaching staff who would be interested in achieving the award of Eurolecturer are asked to contact the group leader, or to attend the group's meeting in Bratislava.
