Over the period from January 2010 to January 2013 the LNAU followed all the activities stipulated by the project.

On March 29-30, 2010 the coordinator of the project from LNAU Olga Ishchenko took part in a kick-off meeting of all the consortium members. The main goal of the meeting was to meet the participants from European, Russian and Ukrainian universities (the presentation were made by each consortium member), discuss the management groups, activities to be fulfilled for the three year of the project.

On September 12-16, 2010 two participants from LNAU took part in the International Workshop in Crimean Agro-Technology University and made a presentation “Training of Master students in specialty “Ecology at LNAU”.

As the main goal of the project is to bring three cycle structure curricula and teaching methods in the discipline “Ecology” and “Agro Ecology”  into line with Bologna requirements LNAU started with the assessment of the existing courses in order to select the courses to be modernized and to be developed as new ones at LNAU.

For this purpose the 4 working groups were organized at the Department of Ecology and Biology headed by Associate Professor Khirivskyy Petro.

After assessment the existing courses and consultations with the European partners the working group elaborated the target curricula.

For Bachelor Degree in the field of study: “Ecology, Environmental Protection and Sustainable Nature Use” 2 new specializations “Bio Ecology” and “Ecological Tourism” and 6 new courses within this specialization have been detected for the elaboration

  •  Organization of tourist business and guiding
  •  Recreation resources and resort development
  •  Ecological tourist services
  •  Land and water ecosystems
  •  Eco Bio Cenology
  •  Geo Abnormal zones and Biota

For Master Degree new specialization “Agro Ecology” was targeted for including in the university curricula within specialty “Ecology, Environmental Protection” and 4 new courses were to be developed

  •  Sustainable Nature Use of Rural Territories
  •  Ecological Expertise of Agricultural Production
  •  Agro Ecological Monitoring and Certification
  •  Management of Ecological and Technogenic Safety

For PhD Program with existing specialty “Ecology”, courses on methodology of scientific research were detected for modernization and a new course in “Ecological Bio Chemistry” was to be developed.

2 members of each working group participated in intensive courses organized by European universities. Those mobility enabled the lecturers to compare the programs on the respective field of study and acquire a clear vision of which courses need to be adapted within the university, which have to be modernized and which courses have to be developed as new ones.

After returning from the study tours to European universities each group made presentations on the received information and materials to the members of their department (department of Ecology and Biology). 5 workshops with the members of the department were organized (average 25 lecturers took part in each workshop).

The discipline “Ecological Toxicology” (Bachelor degree) which has not been detected as a course for modernization at the beginning has been modernized after the intensive courses in Ghent University. The materials have been collected and now the new course book is due to be published by the beginning of the new academic year entitled “Ecological Toxicology”.

Besides, the typical Ministry program on the discipline “System theory and systematic analysis in Ecology” has been worked out by the participants of the intensive courses in Boku university Hnativ Petro and Krektun Bohdan and  submitted to Ministry.

Petro Hnativ, Petro Khirivskyy, Natalia Panas prepared for publication the new course book on the discipline “Natural and resource potential of Ukraine”.

For Specialty “Ecology and Environmental Protection” (Master level) 4 new typical study programs have been developed and applied to the Ministry of Education of Ukraine.

From 01.09.2011, field of study: “Ecology, Environmental Protection and Sustainable Nature Use” (Bachelor Degree) 2 specializations “Bio Ecology”, “Ecological Tourism” have been introduced in the university curricula and 6 new courses are being taught:
