On the 12th of October 2017, at the PRO DIDACTICA Educational Center, the first group of teachers from the primary and general secondary education institutions from various school subjects attended the evaluation and certification seminar with the topic “Open Educational Resources”, after benefiting from a new training program in the field. Thus, teachers have the opportunity to harness their own digital competences by designing and applying electronic resources in the educational process, both to the subjects they teach, and to the councelling classes or to any other kind of educational activities. We have found with professional satisfaction that the interest of the students for the subject studied is still high, specific practices of creative development, search and efficient use of national and international OER have been presented with the involvement of colleagues and students.
On 25 August 2017, over 30 teachers from 17 educational institutions from different localities of the country participated for the fourth consecutive year in a training program for the professional empowerment to teach the new optional discipline “The Culture of Good Neighborhood”, in fourth grade.
