Educational materials for 2 Intensive Study Programmes 'Embedded food systems in territories'

This GOODFOOD output will constitute of a collection of Intensive Study Programme educational materials (various workshops syllabi and lectures) to be tested during the two Intensive Programmes. The materials will integrate a wide range of topics in the area of embedded food systems, i.e. regional and traditional food, slow food, food sovereignty, locality of the food chains, organic food and farming, food communities and many others. Students’ understanding of the embedded food systems topic and their expectations specified in the O1 survey will be considered during final selection of the topics. In the methodology, emphasis will be put on action learning, strengthening students’ team working and communication skills, analytical and problem solving skills, creativity, entrepreneurship, intercultural competences and fluent communication in English. A strong focus on systems approach and techniques of problem oriented learning will make the programme innovative and socially oriented. During the study trips organized within the Intensive Programmes students will visit traditional and regional food producers and analyse various aspects of sustainability of the local food system and its embeddedness in the territory – the methodology of such study trips as an experiential learning tool, will also build a part of materials. The Intensive Programmes will gather lecturers from all GOODFOOD partners, and thus will bring international, multidisciplinary perspective into the studied topic, which will be reflected in the materials.
The GOODFOOD consortium is now working on this task.
