The DAMOC project (Development of a HArmonized MOdular Curriculum for the Smart Grid), aims at fostering capacity building in the field of Smart Grids by developing a harmonized, modular curriculum. The objective of the project is to produce new, interdisciplinary master courses implemented by the partnering institutions in Africa, in running laboratories, in online courses, improving networking force between the partners. The last meeting took place in the wonderful facilities of Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology (NM-AIST) in Arusha from November, 5th to 9th 2018. The intent was to present and develop the Training work package included in the DAMOC project.

USGM and the other partners involved provided the targeted HEIs Tanzanina teaching staff the skills and knowledge necessary to organize and improve master courses in the field of Smart Grids in their institutions.
In particular, both days were spent presenting the new didactic materials developed so far and training the professors on different aspects of European best practices and the Bologna Process. Lastly, USGM was directly involved in presenting its distinctive online teaching methods, including assessments and lessons.

Several positive feedbacks were expressed by Tanzanian partners and they also demonstrate interest in getting more involved in blended and e-learning didactic solutions.
