Work Package 6, "Training" is going to work with
the production of new web-based learning materials and tools, aimed at flexible use both in distance education, residential
education and continuing training at the workplace. This is going to be achieved by making "Learning objects", which are a
kind of digital content modules for learning, that can easily be reused and repurposed for different kinds of training and
Biohydrometallurgy is a cross-disciplinary field of knowledge, where mainly microbiology meets mineral engineering, but
other disciplines are involved also as process and environmental engineering, geology, etc. The objects produced will be
mainly at masters level. A test course using a first version of the objects will be run in the project, and the objects
will be made available on open-source-basis in global repositories of learning objects. Education solutions will be
essential in the exploitation process also - if the project succeeds, there will be a growing demand for education and
training in the field for implementing new technology in Europe.
The partners are going to work inside fields of their expertise producing the building blocks of interdisciplinary
understanding as learning objects.
A portal module of more popular nature for orientation purposes
will also be made - as
well as three different applied modules, where it is possible to work together with others around existing and new processes
and essential factors in biohydrometallurgy.
As a complement a database will be made - with the terminology of the field
defined and linked to resources.
Multi-language functions for essential terminology will also be tied to this.
