Title: Design of polymer education material for French speaking countries

Task Group
Gerard Froyer

Members: Djafer Benachour, Philippe Dubois, Jean-Pascal Eloundou, Dhanjay Jhurry, Hamid Kaddami, Armand Soldera, and Françoise Winnik

The aim of this project is to provide the French-speaking countries with a standard for polymer education based on various tools such as books, multi-media or databases.

The need for a standard in polymer education is recognized and expressed by French speaking academics of both emerging and developed countries.

The proposed new materials will be elaborated by partners working in separate task groups, each one focusing on specific medium. The choice of topics to be developed will be made after discussion taking into account the minimum 50-hour program already recommended in France by the French Polymer Group (GFP).

Therefore the project should lead to materials illustrating the basic standard in polymer education for French speaking academics has been active in the production of books to be used as standard for recently nominated teachers. However these books are only available to GFP members.

The task group of this project includes professors from several countries part of Europa, Africa and America. Their work would focus on the elaboration of new books and other media in an effort to give a attractive approach of polymer education in French speaking countries around the world.

Anticipated Impact - It is expected that the materials that will be developed will serve as a standard for the teaching of Polymer Science at undergraduate level in the French-speaking countries. The access to such materials free of charge or at a very low cost will not only be helpful to academics in these countries but will certainly attract more students and foster the discipline
