Two day “train the teachers” sessions were organized on 18-19 August 2021. Originally, these sessions were planned as face-to-face workshops in Vietnam and Myanmar. Due to COVID-19, the workshops were converted into online sessions. Work package 2 (Development) leader TU/e organized the online training sessions. 17 teachers from four Vietnamese partner universities participated.
All new or updated lighting courses that will be taught at the associated universities in Vietnam and Myanmar as part of this Erasmus+ project consist of multiple modules; ranging from light fundamentals to lighting applications. All teaching materials (lecture slides and exercises) were shared with the teachers before the training sessions took place. The teachers studied the materials and came in the meetings well-prepared. The first session covered the first four sets of modules (i.e., lighting fundamentals, light sources, lighting design, and simulations/calculations) and the second session the second sets (i.e., smart lighting, energetic/environmental and economic considerations, light and human, lighting applications).
The training event started with an introduction round of all teachers, lab managers, responsible staff, and project partners after which we dove into the content of the teaching materials. For every module it was indicated at which university the module was being taught and in which specific course. For example, the module photometry will be taught at all six universities. There was sufficient time for the teachers to ask questions and some interesting discussions were held.
As a follow-up on these online training sessions, an online simulation training (DIALux EVO 9.2) will be organized for the teachers in October 2021.(August 30 2021)
