Sustainability engineering education
Peter Glavič, 2006, original scientific article

Abstract: University sustainability education programmes in several European countries and the US have been compared to find common characteristics of the curricula in environmental science and engineering programmes. In particular, chemical engineering and applied chemistry departments have been focused here. Small, innovative European countries (Austria, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Sweden, and Switzerland) have been in fore front. In bigger countries (France, Great Britain, Spain, and the US) programmes from some of the top 100 universities in Europe and the Americas have been considered, three from each country and seven from the US. The frequency of the courses in various groups and typical course titles are shown within each group. Evolution from pollution prevention courses to sustainability subjects is observed. The most employed textbooks are also provided.

The role of computer-aided chemical engineering education within the european Bologna three- cycle study system
Zdravko Kravanja, Jiri Klemeš, 2011, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: Universities around Europe are currently adopting the new Bologna three-cycle study system and most of Chemical Engineering departments have already developed new study programs accordingly. In this respect, two main questions have been posed in order to reorganize current chemical engineering study programs: i) which skills and knowledge, common to all chemical engineers, should not be ignored whilst developing new chemical engineer curricula, and ii) which are the other chemical engineering topics, engineering fields, and nonengineering knowledge necessary for engineers to manage those problems of specific current and future (bio)chemical and process related industries. One of the aims of this presentation is to discuss basic learning outcomes, and recommended topics common to all chemical engineers, especially relating to those process systems engineering aspects to be embedded within new study programs requiring the use of computer-aided methods and tools during chemicalengineering education. The uses for these methods and tools will be discussed shortly, among them the development of new computer-aided methods and tools, multimedia internet-based teaching and learning programs, and cyberinfrastrucure-based virtual libraries.
Keywords: Bologna study system, computer-aided education, chemical engineering core curriculum, program outcomes, computer-aided methods and tools

Another step towards a virtual university in construction IT
Danijel Rebolj, Karsten Menzel, 2004, original scientific article

Abstract: Nine universities started a project in autumn 2001 with the aim to develop an interuniversity postgraduate program in Construction Information Technology. The program is intended to be offered to students on most of the partner universities. On some of them it should start already in the academic year 2003/2004. The students will attend the subjects in different ways: face-to-face at home universities, face-to-face at partner universities, as well as by means of open and distant learning. The program has been developed with the purpose that students will not only get the best subjects the partneruniversities can offer in this specific area, but will also get the very important experience of other universities, countries and cultures, as well as of using IT in the learning and working process. Some partner universities, like University of Salford, already offer programmes in open distant learning mode. To extend the experiences and to try more, mostly videoconferencing technologies, TU Dresden and University of Maribor joint twoclasses of students in the early 2003 and run a 30 hour seminar on "Mobile Computing in Construction." Valuable observations have been taken, which were then used to conceptualize an ideal distant learning environment. The paper describes the background, the teaching experiment itself, the observations made, and the specification of an integral distant learning environment, as a framework of a future Virtual University in Construction IT.

Interuniversity postgraduate program in construction IT
Fátima Farinha, Ricardo Gonçalves, Danijel Rebolj, Karsten Menzel, 2003, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: This paper reports on an interuniversity collaboration, funded by Erasmus Program, which develops a European Master course in Construction Information Technology (ITC) to complement the existing portfolio of postgraduate programsand to meet the growing demand for such skills in the construction industry all over the world. The curriculum is defined in a way that courses will be offered from different universities in Europe, as face-to-face education as well as long distance learning courses, which will give students the possibility not just to study in other countries, but also to tailor the program to their own needs and wishes. Students will not only get the best subjects but will also get the very important experience of different universities and cultures as well as of using information technology (IT) in the learning process. The paper concludes presenting and discussing ITC@EDU network, which main purpose is to support and link together teachers in the area of IT in construction. Therefore, the significance of the work done exceeds the postgraduate program, as it has become the linking point for the further development of ITC education globally.

Practical work in biology, chemistry and physics at lower secondary and general upper secondary schools in Slovenia
Andrej Šorgo, Andreja Špernjak, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: Syllabi in the science subjects, biology, chemistry and physics at lower and general upper secondary school are compared in the light of their underlying philosophies, goals, objectives and recognized importance in science teaching. Even though all syllabi were prepared within the same framework, great differences among syllabi concerning practical work are evident. More importance is given to practical work in the syllabi of chemistry and physics, where it is recognized as a basic method, while in the biology syllabus the construction of concepts is valued much higher.

Evaluation of the planned curriculum for kindergartens in the field of music education
Olga Denac, 2009, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: The problem of planning music education is related to the philosophical dimension of the development of the curricula for music education. Knowledge and understanding of the theoretical bases, goals and principles of the curriculum is the basis for the planning, realisation and evaluation of the educational process of music education. The present article presents the results of a study which included 159 pre-school teachers from all over Slovenia. The aim of the research was to establish the place and the role music education should have in the curriculum designed for kindergartens, and to recognise the difficulties pre-school teachers encounter as they execute individual principles of the curriculum in the process of operative planning of music education. The designed curriculum was analysed from the point of view of structure, activities, goals, contents, teaching strategies and instructional media. The results of the research show that music education hasbeen losing professional autonomy within the field of art and that the teachers only partially carry out individual principles of the curriculum in the planning of the educational process.

A hidden curriculum in kindergartens and empathy of preschool teachers
Jurka Lepičnik-Vodopivec, 2007, original scientific article

Abstract: The present article illustrates the problem of a hidden curriculum in kindergartens. It is presented as an important part of the overt curriculum. The empathy of kindergarten teachers is shown within the scope of a hidden curriculum. The second part discusses the results of the research on empathy of preschool teachers as an important element of the hidden curriculum in kindergartens. Four dimensions of empathy were identified: social self-confi dence, calmness, sensitivity and non-conformism. Each of these dimensions contributes on its own and together with the others to a better understanding of empathy of kindergarten teachers, which undoubtedly influences and encourages the development of emphatic communication among preschool teachers, children and parents.
