The VAI²P Training project (VETERINARY AND AGRONOMIC INTERNATIONAL AND INNOVATIVE PEDAGOGIC TRAINING) is a collaborative project for the international in-service training of veterinary and agronomic teachers. It aims to strengthen teaching curricula, in order to meet the recommendations on the minimum competences for graduate veterinarians (OIE recommendations, EAEVE accreditation).
VAI²P aim: teaching teams of the same discipline but of different nationalities design educational resources according to the competence-based approach method and with the use of digital tools. The educational resources are co-constructed taking into account the local context, and then co-delivered in situ, in front of the target audience.
VAI²P is supported by ENVF (Écoles nationales vétérinaires de France) and ENSFEA (École Nationale Supérieure de Formation de l’Enseignement Agricole – ENSFEA). ENVF provides scientific and technical support, ENSFEA provides expertise and pedagogical supervision.
The first session of VAI2P started in September 2021 and involved international partners, particularly from Africa. The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Huambo, Angola, IAV Hassan II of Rabat, Morocco, the Agro-Veterinary Faculty of Bila Tserkva, Ukraine and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Saint Hyacynthe, Quebec, are the first pilot partners of VAI²P.
