The Environment Centre at Charles University in Prague was pleased to host a 3-day international workshop showcasing a range of innovative teaching methods with the aim to enrich the portfolio of course activities in the area of sustainable food systems. The workshop was held on 19th - 21st February 2020 under the guidance of lecturers from several European universities from Denmark, Germany, France and Italy as part of the project TEFSI funded by the Erasmus+ Programme.
TEFSI supports cooperation between 9 European universities to develop, implement and widely disseminate innovative teaching approaches, materials, methods and tools on various aspects of sustainable food systems. It thereby aims to increase educators' awareness about the importance of including sustainability issues into their everyday lecturing in food science, human nutrition, agriculture, and related university-level education. The project is ongoing and should continue until August 2021. There are already materials available (e.g. the TEFSI Hanbook: Impulses for Innovative Teaching) and more will be added to the project website as the project progresses until next year.
