Train-the-Professors Third Week

Third week of the Train-the-Professors programme successfully completed

Between the 28th and 30th of January, Brussels hosted the third week of the Train-the-Professors programme, a programme devoted to the training and inclusion of new instructors in the Foundation’s register.

The short training, addressed to advanced instructors in cluster development, was set-up to expand the number of certified instructors in line with the growth of the Foundation's operations and its number of courses imparted. Among other modules, future professors of the Foundation went through the Change Management module, an essential module belonging to the third phase of the overall programme. 

After successful completion of the training, instructors will be requested to deliver specific case-based programme modules related to their field of expertise. Most of the classes analyzed how to teach using the case–based teaching methodology. They were delivered either by the authors of the cases, the case protagonists, or by professors having extensive experience in their delivery.

The training revolved around cases such as the Textile Industry in Mexico, the Catalan Leather Case or the IT in Estonia. Instruction of the programme will continue along February with the fourth training week, also held in the European capital.
