Title: Organisation of Clearing House for the translation, publication,
and dissemination of the IUPAC-sources materials and ideas in chemical
education in Russia and CIS.
Chairman: Elena S.
Members: Nina A. Kozyreva and Anna A. Dodonova
Improvement of professional skill of teachers in secondary school, high
school, polytechnics, and colleges with the help of the translation
and dissemination of available educational materials from different
sources to these educational institutes.
The main goal of the Project is to eliminate the present gap in teaching
of chemistry between fundamental science and curricula. New educational
technologies and methods as well as foreign scientific magazines such
as Chemistry International and Pure and Applied Chemistry
are not available for school teachers and even in high school in Russia
and CIS. Chemistry teachers often haven't got an access to Internet.
That's why it is necessary to involve an intermediary organisation in
Moscow for the dissemination of IUPAC-sources educational materials
and practices approved by CCE. Clearing House could become such an organisation.
This Clearing House will receive educational materials and recommendations
from the National Representative in CCE and then translate, publish
and disseminate them to educational institutes in Russia and CIS with
mail, e-mail, Internet, in TV programs, by publications in Russian newspapers
and magazines and so on, and at innovative workshops. Necessary methodological
literature to be translated into Russian, prepared, and published. Our
goal is to give them recommendations regarding textbooks that should
be published. It will be the work completely corresponding to the IUPAC
strategy; for example, publishing "green chemistry", books
on toxicology. Positive example is Salters Advanced Chemistry textbook.
Organising workshops for teachers and any other audience to spread information
is one of the dissemination forms. The House of Sciences of RAS in Moscow
could be one of the places for permanent workshops. In the meantime
wide educational reform is going in Russia and IUPAC recommendations
are very important so they could be used in this reform. That is why
it is very important to organise such a Clearing House now.
The Clearing House has been be set up at the UNESCO Associated Center
for Chemical Science and Education.
