Agriculture & Forestry (1)



University of Agriculture in Krakow derives its experience from intellectual heritage and tradition of the Jagiellonian University. At this very University agronomical and forestry sciences developed since 1890 and young people were educated with particular regard to their patriotic upbringing.


Due to such defined graduate profile the University constantly modifies and updates its curricula at the same time extending the scope of biological subjects and humanities. The core of these changes should be programmes constructed to enable not only teaching but also stimulating creative thinking in students. Diversification of study programmes may be a chance to reach this objective. However, it requires a new outlook on the role of an academic teacher who should become more a moderator and guide in the teaching process using modern teaching methods.

Two main areas may be distinguished, i.e. research projects realised as grants and the European Union programmes where the objectives are determined the author of a project or by contracting agency. The other comprises projects implemented as the statutory activities. These projects should be strictly connected with a widely understood didactic process and support it.
