Hung Yen, 23 Feb. – 7 Mar. 2009
Following the last training course on Basis of programming of meachtronic system with PLC, from 23 February to 7 March 2009, a 4th training course on “Installation and programming of mechatronic stations” was organized at mechatronic Lab, Hung Yen University of Technology and Education. This training course aimed improving professional qualification (especially technical knowledge and skills as well as didactics), developing and using the teaching and learning material for the above module. Participants of this training course were 12 teachers/instructors from project partner institutes with instruction of international and local experts.
The workshop included a one-day visit to clean-water Provision Company in Hai Phong and Hoang Thach Cement Company in Quang Ninh. It is expected that with these activities the teachers/instructors shall have a deeper understanding about equipments/machines relating to mechatronic field, in particularly control systems used in industry. During the last two days of the training course, 4 lessons were planned, prepared and taught to students of HY UTE by 4 working groups.
In order to build capacity for key teachers of schools, participants of this training course will be invited to participate in the next course on didactical further training (planned in June 2009).
