E-LEARNING

The Infravec2 E-learning portal will include educational resources related to insect vectors. Information on vector biology will be provided to teachers and other professionals working with young people as well as to participants hosted by partner institutions. 

These learning aids will be based on articles, cases, protocols and standard operating procedures. Material will also be provided to accompany Infravec2 workshops on genome and virome annotation, on training courses in secure CL2/CL3 insectary methods, and on insect vector bioinformatics.

Trainees will participate in preparatory and wrap-up online sessions, in knowledge assessments and in exercises both before and after iworkshops and courses. Trainees and mentors will continue to interact through online forums and chats following the workshops to foster a sense of community among the trainees.
