From 4th till 10th June 2017 the ELA Project held its first five-day intensive training internship to improve legal skills of institutional projectmanagers, modular teamleaders and researchers and to reflect upon the different education systems and teacher training programmes.
Eight draft modules (WPDEV 3.1/WPQC 5.2), the first draft description of the education law curriculum (content taught in the education law course) (WPDEV 2.2) and the first draft course syllabus (summary of each of the modules covered/taught in the particular education law course) (WPDEV 2.2) were discussed with peers, the internal quality control conducted (WPDEV 5.2) and the first multilingual e-Newsletter written (WPD&S/MNG 7.3).
