Title: Design of polymer education
material for French speaking countries
Jhurry, Hamid Kaddami,
The aim of this project is to provide the French-speaking countries
with a standard for polymer education based on various tools such
as books, multi-media or databases.
The need for a standard in polymer education is recognized and expressed
by French speaking academics of both emerging and developed countries.
The proposed new materials will be elaborated
by partners working in separate task groups, each one focusing on
specific medium. The choice of topics to be developed will be made
after discussion taking into account the minimum 50-hour program
already recommended in France by the French Polymer Group (GFP).
Therefore the project should lead to materials
illustrating the basic standard in polymer education for French
speaking academics has been active in the production of books to
be used as standard for recently nominated teachers. However these
books are only available to GFP members.
The task group of this project includes
professors from several countries part of Europa, Africa and America.
Their work would focus on the elaboration of new books and other
media in an effort to give a attractive approach of polymer education
in French speaking countries around the world.
Anticipated Impact - It is expected that the materials
that will be developed will serve as a standard for the teaching
of Polymer Science at undergraduate level in the French-speaking
countries. The access to such materials free of charge or at a very
low cost will not only be helpful to academics in these countries
but will certainly attract more students and foster the discipline
