IMCert TLC

TEACHING AND LEARNING CENTRE (TLC)

TLC-blended learning labs established for E-learning and practical research competence.

TLC is the focal point for supporting teaching staff and postgraduates during and after the completion of the project. Providing access to immune modulation in the post-graduate diploma equipped with competencies that could respond successfully to the current and emerging needs of staff and students and prepare future repatriation, ensures the sustainability of the IMCert.

TLC will contain e-laboratories which will provide a direct link for students to the e-learning platform and also serve for the online continuous training support of the staff as well as the blended learning services for the needs of the professional development certificate.

 TLC will contain lab equipment needed for IMCert. technical issue.

Objectives (WP4)

  • Development of 5 TLCs of excellence, which provide a chance for building the capacity of the 5 Egyptian universities [AZHU, DMU, ASU, ASW, CU]. TLCs are fully established by m17.
  • Provide e-learning and advanced research equipment for practical competence (accommodate >2000 students/per year and educator staff; N= 300/year/5TLCs using labs too sharing in building their capacities for free).
  • Serve students, staff, technicians, and administrators along and beyond the completion of the IMCert project.
  • TLC will provide a direct link for postgraduates students to e-learning platform and also serve for the online continuous training support of the staff as well as the blended learning services for the needs of the of the professional development certificate.
  • TLC-blended learning laboratories support postgraduate and educational staff in the piloting and implementation of the immune modulation programme in WP5
  • In sustainability phase it can serve also nonacademic trainer seeking experience on the TLC Equipments.
  • TLC, increase the quality of trainings by improving the quality of instructors entering it.
