Agricultural University of Tirana provides modern digital infrastructure and modern methodologies for teaching (e-Learning), scientific research and training in the field of Animal Sciences.
In the framework of the Erasmus + project “Dual university studies in animal sciences, agribusiness and security of livestock products“, the Agricultural University of Tirana (AUT) has created a modern digital infrastructure and is applying modern methodologies for online learning (e-Learning) in the Department of Animal Sciences. Two auditoriums equipped with computers and Hybrid modules have given the opportunities for students to attend lectures and other classes by foreign professors, not only from partner universities in this project (University of Nürtingen – Germany, University of Savonia – Finland), but also other universities in Europe and beyond. Three classrooms equipped with computers will be used for exercises and seminars with students of this department and other faculties and departments of UBT. This modern infrastructure will be widely used for training courses that will be offered by AUT, respectively this department, for zootechnics specialists working in the Livestock Advisory Service and those who run livestock farms in our country.
The application of e-Learning in teaching and training courses is based on the most advanced didactic methods applied by foreign universities, especially those partner of this project, the University of Savonia in Finland and the University of Nürtingen Geislingen in Germany. Professors from partner universities are also training AUT professors for the application of contemporary didactic methods in distance learning, especially e-Learning. Developed partner university modules for Bachelor and Master students are being adapted by the Department of Animal Sciences of AUT and will be approached by students attending Bachelor and Master programs in the field of Livestock Sciences and will be included in specialist training courses of the livestock sector and managers of livestock farms in our country.
