Trilateral course on Glia in neuroinflammation
The “Trilateral course on Glia in neuroinflammation” aims to develop a multi-campus on-line teaching material to be used by master and PhD students in each university member of the NENS cluster. By using a blended pedagogical approach consisting of practical video materials and multi-campus on-line lectures about the contribution of macrophages, microglia and astrocytes to neuroinflammation in the peripheral and central nervous system, the course will offer the students the opportunity to learn more about methods and topics complementary to the ones that are usually used in their lab, without the need to actually visit a particular university. The modular nature of this course will allow further development and sustainability inside the NENS cluster and hopefully, on long-term, will serve as a model of a multi-campus European curricula in neuroscience.
This cluster is funded by the FENS Committee of Higher Education and Training (CHET).
