After 1st BESTSDI Summer school held in June in Split, BESTSDI gathered again on 4th workshop. This time host was University of Montenegro, Faculty of Philosophy and workshop was held in their faculty premises in Nikšić. Even though this was a two-day workshop, it was a very important meeting with many activities ongoing. This was also last meeting in the first project year giving opportunity to see where the project was successful and where it needs extra push. More than 35 project participants gathered this time in center of Montenegro.
It is our intention to disseminate project information and communicate results with a broad audience. To achieve this, we are launching e-Newsletter. It should deliver information about our activities, events, results and activities tied to the project undertaken by project partners.
We hope that BESTSDI Newsletter will encourage broader discussion about teaching SDI at the institu-tions of higher education, and therefore, we are also open to reader’s opinions and discussion.
