WP4: Qualification of Higher Education Teaching Staff (QHETS)


Main objective of WP4 is the building of a framework that will offer an European lecturing qualification addressing the multi-national character of lecturing staff throughout the European Food Studies community.

This qualification will identify a series of competencies that are fundamental to the lecturing process while acknowledging the need to have individually tailored programmes to suit national, regional and academic field idiosyncrasies.

Pilot Training Scool 

The previous activities of the ISEKI and ISEKI_Food Network Projects have demonstrated the importance of "educating the educator" in innovative teaching and learning methods. There is a need for practitioners to create a community in the area of teaching and learning in food studies. ISEKI4 has launched a training qualification to introduce food studies professionals to this innovative teaching in the subject.
