E-mail Print PDF

The project "Science Training Laboratory (STL)" using ICTs funded by British Council/DElPHE programme organizes courses, seminars and workshops dealing with the use of ICTs for science  teaching and learning for academic and scientific staffs, students and  pupils. The project is r. Partners from Kinshasa University (Democratic Republic of Congo), Cologne University (Germany), Catholic University Leuven (Belgium) and Cambridge Crystallographic  Data Centre (United Kingdom) are involved in that project.       From December 2009 to July 2010, training courses  have been  organized for about  850 students from University Kinshasa (Medicine, Biology and Chemistry) and 450 students and pupils from secondary schools in Kinshasa. Pupils have been trained in tools like use of ChemDraw for  3D visualization of  laboratory materials and structure of organic molecules.

About 100 academics and scientists attended at workshops (March and June 2010 respectively) on design and development of the website Portal Education for Africa (PEA) for science teaching using ICTs. They have been trained in tools like Cambridge Structural Database (CSD). Teaching examples from WebCSD have been provided.

STL's Project

The project training laboratory (STL) using ICT aims to improve teaching and learning of sciences, especially Chemistry (Biochemistry and Geochemistry), Biology, Geology and Physics, in DRC secondary schools and Universities using existing laboratories or poorly equipped to develop new training laboratories (TL) based facilities and skills through ICT where experiment capacity may be reinforced.

General objectives

· Development of a network promoting the use of ICT in Science teaching and learning

· Sharing of teachers’ knowledge and extending it to a large number of students and pupils;

· Best use and application of knowledge and skills leading to good management of natural resources and reducing poverty and suffering (MDG) in DRC.

Specific objectives

  • Incorporating ICT use in teaching and learning of sciences using existing laboratories leading to training laboratories (TL) for students and pupils;
  • Training of science teachers (Academics, Scientifics and teachers of secondary schools) to improve the innovation competence and confidence in using ICT and to reinforce the research and innovation capacity;
  • Improving the learning capacity sciences of students and pupils using didactic methods focusing on ICT use (e.g. simulation experiments and COME-ON games);
  • Creating and maintaining a web site as portal of training of sciences (e-TL), promoting discussion and knowledge exchange between teachers, students and pupils from different countries and continents

Le projet TL pour l'enseignement des sciences

L’enseignement des sciences a toujours occupé une place de choix dans les programmes de l’éducation nationale (niveaux secondaire et universitaire) en RDC, cadrant ainsi bien avec le haut potentiel de ses ressources naturelles. En effet, la large diversité de ces dernières nécessite pour leur mise en valeur la formation des experts capables de promouvoir et pérenniser un savoir-faire local. Pour un pays en développement comme la RDC, l’acquisition et la maîtrise de nouvelles connaissances par l’enseignement des sciences demeurent un pari à gagner.
