To prepare future professionals for emerging opportunities in nanomaterials and technologies of nanomaterials academic communities shall provide students an interdisciplinary education to with a broad understanding of natural, engineering and information sciences, develop methodology for integrating nanomaterials and technologies of nanomaterials education into mainstream curricula as well as offer programs for refresher training to specialists and instructors.
Research university’s strategies for teaching should be based on creating both knowledge-centered and learning-centered environments inside and outside a classroom. Because technologies are advancing so fast, activities that encourage creative thinking and life-long learning should be given the highest priority. Research universities should offer a rich environment where education and research are blended in the complex process of mind forming.
All above-listed problems can’t be solved without wide usage of ICT. As well as distant forms of education. National Science Foundation (USA) estimated that by the year 2015 there will be a need for 2 million workers worldwide in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology. According to Academician Y.D.Tretiakov this number is higher - about 5-6 millions.
This “army” needs to be given second education or to be provided with advanced training that can’t be implemented in such volume without distant forms of education. But also “first education” that physician students, material scientists etc. will get today in universities in the field of nanomaterials and technologies of nanomaterials can’t be provided without ICT, without Internet-resources, without electronic libraries.
The report gives an overview of ICT (information and communication technologies) applications which can be used effectively both for education (and for research activities) in nanomaterials and technologies of nanomaterials in different countries and world regions.
