“E-Learning: Sustainability, Environment and Renewable Energy in Latin America: a Multinational Training Pilot Module at Postgraduate Level” N. Amaro, F. Buch, and J.B. Salgueirinho Osório de Andrade Guerra1 Abstract A pilot module will be implemented by four of the JELARE project’s partners: Bolivia, Brazil, Guatemala and Latvia. Research was carried out by them in their own countries, where a scarcity of multidisciplinary programmes was detected at postgraduate level. The common characteristic was the need to modernize the curriculum by introducing a more diverse outlook. The definitive student profile should aim to provide skills useful to the private and public, non-governmental and academic sectors. The pensum will consist of 13 courses, identified on the basis of an analysis of the competencies needed, contained within three modules: sustainability, environment and renewable energy (with courses such as Sociol- ogy of Development and Global Challenges, Environment and Sustainable De- velopment, Energy Matrix Planning, Energy Economics, Policies and Regula- tions on Energy and Environment as well as courses mainly devoted to renew- able energy and its management). The postgraduate programme is to be imple- mented over four trimesters. Online teaching methods will be introduced high- 1 N. Amaro is at Universidad Galileo in Guatemala, 7ª.
